Tasting Notes

Pure, focused and minerally with almost a salty edge despite the high level of sweetness. Beautifully composed with wonderful intensity and finish.

Score: 92

Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2019-2026 01 April 2014

Lots of rich, waxy fruit on the palate, though the nose is very discreet. Spice honey and marmalade on the palate with loads of core concentration. Shows promise. (17+)

Score: 17

Jancis Robinson MW, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2015-2025 01 April 2014

Ripe, unctuous, rounded style, with lots of orange cream, almond, heather and ginger notes backed by hazelnut and tangerine. Long, powerful finish should really stretch out.

Score: 92 - 95

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator 01 April 2014

A delicious nose of butterscotch and lime aromas. Medium-bodied with lovely fruit purity. This is really lovely, refreshing and clean in style.

Score: 92 - 94

Albany Vintners, - 01 April 2014

Attractive apple-purée and honey character. Medium body, lightly sweet with a fresh finish. Outstanding length here.

Score: 90 - 91

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 01 April 2014

The sample of 2013 Doisy-Vedrines was showing a little reduction on the nose when I first tasted it. The palate is promising, however, perhaps more linear and less honeyed than recent vintages, but that is compensated by greater tension towards the middle and finish. You might describe this as a more streamlined Doisy-Vedrines, dare I say one that is more like Doisy-Daene in style, with wonderful mineralite on the finish.

Score: 91 - 93
