Doisy Daene 2007 750ml

Lovers of this cru will not be disappointed. As usual the emphasis is on elegance and freshness rather than power. There is piercingly pure fruit and length, yet with fine concentration. It is still very much evolving but the breed comes through 2013 could go higher. 4 stars. Score: 17.5 Decanter Magazine, Decanter.com
 
Pale greenish gold. Floral, mineral notes with a strongly mineral streak - promising! Very exciting. Classic stuff with strong botrytis character and great richness yet lots of well integrated acidity. Quite long and neat. A throat warmer. Score: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com
 
Intensely spicy, with lots of dried apricot, apple and pear character on the nose and palate. Full and rich, yet racy and lively. Shows balance and wonderful potential. 90 - 93 Score: 90-93 James Suckling, WineSpectator.com
 
The 2007 Doisy-Daene has an intense nose with heavily botrytized fruit with notes of peach, honeydew melon, apple-blossom and a touch of mango. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with a fantastic sense of tension and nervosité. Notes of honey, peach, minerals, citrus lemon with a wonderfully focused finish that goes on and on. A really wonderful Barsac. Drink 2012-2040. Tasted April 2008 Score: 94-96 Wine Advocate
