Chateau Doisy Vedrines Sauternes (375ML Futures Pre-Sale) 2011
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points
This noble manor and its vineyards were one called Doizic, and in the middle of the 17th century, belonged to Jean Raymond, a Registrar with the Guyenne Borard of Excice. Although a resident of Bordeaux, in February 1677 he pledged "fealty and allegiance" to the king for this noble estate and fief of Doisy situated between Preignac and Barsac in the county of the Gironde.
In June 1704, the land and its buildings were included in the dowry of his grand-daughter and god-daughter, Marie Raymond. On June 5, 1704, in the presence of Guillaume Roborel, court barrister and representative of the king at the royal seat in the parish of Barsac, as well as of the dignitaries of the village, she married Jean-Baptiste Védrines, court barrister and son of Jean Védrines, also court barrister and judge at Sainte-Livrade in the Agen region. Hence, the fief of Doisy became Doisy-Védrines.
