      This almost dry wine is full of botrytized fruit tones. Well balanced, it is likely to turn into a rich, dense wine as it matures, with ample acidity that shines on the finish.
      Barrel Sample: 93–95 Points
      WS 93
      Wine Spectator
      A racy and pure style, with a honeysuckle note leading off, followed quickly by white peach, pineapple and yellow apple fruit flavors mixed with acacia and orange blossom hints. Best from 2022 through 2038.

      Based in Barsac, and has that wonderful spicy tight minerality of a Barsac. A really late harvest this year, right through til the end of October. This has such a beautiful balm yet again for me lacks some pep. It's not a 2007 or 2001 or 2011. But it's gorgeous. The texture of these wines is so crazily seductive and the power and intensity of toasted blood orange slices is stunning, but it would benefit from a lime soaked twist.

      The 2016 Doisy-Vedrines was tasted on three occasions. The first, the sample seemed a little subdued, although two further encounters attest to a fine Barsac. The aromatics do not quite convey the sophistication of the Doisy-Daene, yet there is purity here, attractive dried honey and quince-like aromas, perhaps with the flair of the 2015 last year. The palate is well balanced and more refined than the Doisy-Vedrines of the past, a trend I have noticed in recent vintages. It gains plenty of weight towards the finish, delivering enticing honey, tangerine and light apricot notes with satisfying persistence. Good potential here.
      Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points

      Tons of candied citrus and some floral honey character here. Not as lush as some Sauternes, but more lively and charming than most and the bright finish is long. This is food-friendly – think blue cheese and pate. Drink or hold.

      Chateau Doisy Vedrines, France

      Barsac has lived for centuries in pace with wine. The stones of the walls bordering the vineyards were quarried, long ago, from the pebbly and clayey-limestone land which constitutes the "noble soils" of the commune. Alongside Chateau Climens and Chateau Coutet, in the finest vine-growing area of the commune, once called "Haut-Barsac", one of the oldest estates of the region is to be found : Chateau Doisy Vedrines.

      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.
