2020 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 92

Lemon chiffon, ginger, flowers, vanilla, honey and orange cream are on the nose. Sweet, juicy, and focused on honey-coated yellow tropical fruits and candied yellow citrus, there is ample freshness to balance the sweetness here. 91-93 Pts

2016 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 92

Fresh, lifted, energetic, candied orange, pineapple, apricot, vanilla, honey and floral notes appear on the nose and in all that sweet, ripe and overripe fruit, balanced with a jolt of acidity on the palate. Give it time for the secondary notes to appear, if you can wait. Else, it's already a delicious, sweet treat. 92 Points

2014 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 93

Luscious, sweet, ripe and overripe tropical fruit, candied orange and dried apricot all coated with honey and a touch of marzipan. There is good weight and enough racy acidity keeping this wine on the fresh and refreshing side. 93 Points

2011 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 95

Just a super wine, with honey slathered, white peaches, pineapple, apricot and mango, with vanilla custard caramel and floral notes that are impossible to avoid. Fresh, vibrant, sweet and luscious, with a melange of apricot, pineapple and honey in the finish. This should age and develop for at last anppther 20 years with little effort. 95 Points

2010 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 91

Medium bodied, with a focus on juicy, fresh, sweet, candied, tropical fruits and orange rind, with a blast of honeyed apricots. There is lift, sweetness and freshness, all in the right proportions. 91 Points

2009 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 92

Perfect on a hot summer night with cheese, instead of dessert, this medium bodied, forward, sweet, unctuous wine delivers a lot of fresh, honeyed pineapple, apricot, vanilla, orange rind and white peach on the nose. The fruit maintains a balance of sweetness and freshness, ending with honeyed pineapple and candied citrus rind. 92 Points

2001 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 90

Light, pleasant, fresh and easy to drink, this could work equally well as an aperitief or as a meal accompaniment. But it lacks the depth to satisfy as a dessert wine. 90 Points

The nose was all about the honey coated orange, apricot, pineapple and candied lemon peel perfume. Smooth, sweet and easy on the palate, the fruit in the endnotes had peppy acidity and a melange of honeyed orange, tropical fruit and apricot flavors, even if it was a bit on the lighter side. 91 Points

1988 Château Doisy-Védrines  (Sauternes) 85

This is drying out and losing its fruit. Medium bodied, with only moderate levels of sweetness remaining in the citrus and tropical flavored finish. Drink up before it continues to decline. 85 Points
