Tasting Notes

Liquid honey in appearance. Incredibly ripe with dried apricot, orange and mace. Full-bodied, thick and powerful with amazing richness and spiciness. It goes on and on and on. This concentration is phenomenal. Yet it's lively and spicy. Huge finish. Best after 2012.

Score: 100

There is only a tiny amount of the light gold/green-colored 2001 Doisy-Daene l’Extravagant (primarily Sauvignon Blanc). As the name suggests, it is extravagantly rich as well as very full-bodied with extraordinary purity and intensity. The finish lasts for over a minute. There are loads of botrytis in addition to caramelized tropical fruits, zesty acidity, and striking clarity of expression.

Score: 98
