About this Item

2007 Sauternes
1 (1 x 1) 375ml

Château Doisy-Daëne is an esteemed estate known for its sweet white wines, located in the Barsac commune within Bordeaux. It is a Grand Cru Classé Second Growth under the classification of 1855, which took place in Sauternes and Barsac at the same time as the famous classification of the Médoc and Graves. Doisy-Daëne has been owned by the Dubourdieu family since 1924. The estate makes three wines from 18 hectares of vineyard. These are planted mostly to Semillon, with a small portion of Sauvignon Blanc.

Daëne appears in the classification of Charles Cocks (1846), among the four premier crus of Barsac with Coutet, Climens and Myrat. In 1850, the same author ranked it among the first eleven white wines of Bordeaux. The name Doisy Daëne results from the addition to the Doisy cru of the name of its owner, Jean-Jacques-Emmanuel Daëne, merchant in Bordeaux. Moreover, the vintage appearing in the 1855 classification is Doisy belonging to Daëne.

Doisy-Daëne Sauternes 2007 is a stellar example of the quality and complexity of sweet wines from the Sauternes appellation, offering a luxurious and memorable tasting experience with its rich flavors, vibrant acidity, and exquisite balance.

Critics Ratings

‘Tasted single blind against its peers. Denis Dubourdieu conjured a wonderful Barsac in 2007. Here there is an initial lightness on the nose that builds with each swirl of the glass. It exhibits fine minerality with apple, dried honey and a touch of wet stone. The palate is very harmonious with good acidity, very focused and succinct with great precision towards the poised finish. This has barely starting motoring, but it possesses an unbridled sense of nonchalance. ’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Jan 2011)

‘Mid gold. Very broad and rich on the nose. Frank and straightforward. Big and bold and very well expressed. Dry finish. Quite long and very well balanced.’ - Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 18/20 (Oct 2009)
