2007 Doisy-Vedrines (750ml)

Semillon from Sauternes, Bordeaux, France


Tasted at the château, the 2007 Château Doisy-Védrines does not achieve the same level of precision as the 2006 on the nose, although there is plenty of botrytis here with scents of melted candle wax and white peach. The palate is vibrant on the entry with impressive weight: hints of orange peel and apricot with a tender, almost understated finish. This improves in the glass, gaining more complexity and nuance and yet never quite demonstrating the sheer ambition as the 2009. Yet I notice even within the limited amount of time at my disposal some melioration in the glass, gaining harmony and tension and so I would not hesitate in decanting this very fine Barsac.

Deliciously plummy, with nice drive, offering plum, cassis and blackberry fruit that gets a nice push from well-integrated briar, toasted spice and red licorice notes. The fine-grained finish lets a chalky hint chime in, but remains cloaked in the fruit for now. A charming, pure wine that should age gracefully.—Larcis Ducasse non-blind vertical (December 2012).
