Richer in style than the typical Barsac, with notes of almond cream and orange curd along with honeysuckle, white peach and toasted pineapple flavors. The long, unctuous finish lets the almond hint linger longest. Best from 2020 through 2040. 3,000 cases made.

This luscious wine from Olivier Casteja is full of ripe fruit, apricots and honey. It comes from vineyards on the highest plateau in Barsac. Cut with lively acidity, and showing a light touch, it has both elegance and richness, and will age well over many years. Drink this wine from 2023.

The 2015 Doisy-Védrines is delicate, floral and beautifully lifted. Finely sketched and nuanced, the wine is pure class. White flowers, pineapple, apricot and candied citrus are all finely knit. From barrel, the 2015 was a bit more opulent, but today, from bottle, the impression is of a Sauternes that is light on its feet and quite sensual.

A prototypical Sauternes with tons of marzipan and candied-orange character. A great balance of that with full sweetness, well-judged oak and enough acidity to give a clean, long finish. Drink or hold.
