Tasting Notes

The 2011 Doisy-Vedrines has a far more taciturn bouquet than the Doisy-Daene, offering its trademark tropical, peachy aromas that will hopefully develop more delineation throughout its maturation. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry. There are attractive spicy notes and a satisfying build in the mouth towards its botrytis-rich, tropical finish, although on this occasion I find it needing more tension to merit a higher score. Drink 2014-2030.

Score: 90 - 92

Oily lemon nose. Very sweet and relatively soft. Viscous but a bit flat on the finish.

Score: 16

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2026 23 April 2012

Perfect combination of generous flavours, lifted aromatics and freshness. Despite its power, the palate feels fresh and lively, ready for another sip. 150g per litre residual sugar with nearly 14% alcohol! Very successful vintage that is denser and sweeter than the 2009.

Score: 18

Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2025-2047 16 April 2012

A bright, almost chiseled style, offering fresh-cut pineapple, quince and candied Meyer lemon flavors, with a long, floral-filled finish. Seriously long, with lovely lacy detail already showing on the finish. Should be long-lived.

Score: 94 - 97
