Intense aromas of honey, dried pineapple and botrytis spice. Full-bodied, very sweet and very powerful, with loads of dried fruit and sweetness on the finish. Lots of clove and orange peel. Same quality as the 2001. Best after 2013. 3,500 cases made. -JS

Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Védrines has a rich and decadent bouquet, very honeyed and forward, perhaps missing the precision of the Doisy-Daëne. The palate is rich and powerful with notes of honey, tangerine and marmalade. The finish feel unctuous in the layered in the mouth – a typical Doisy-Védrines of this era, though I think Olivier Castèja produces a more sophisticated Barsac these days. However, a second bottle opened was fresher and more vital, though I will remain conservative with my score.

Bright, pale yellow-gold. Peach and vanillin oak dominate the nose. Quite sweet and fruit-driven in the mouth, with powerful flavors of yellow peach, citrus fruits, marzipan and brown spices. A bit alcoholic today but rich and strong on the back end, in need of time in bottle.

Hailing from the sweet Bordeaux region of Barsac, this is the largest of the Doisy estates which was divided into three parts in 1851, and is arguably the most famous of the three Doisy (Doisy Daene, Doisy Dubroca and Doisy Vedrines). Unlike the other two estates, Doisy Vedrines prefer to use the Sauternes appellation on their label. The style is certainly closer in style to Sauternes: rich and weighty.
