TASTING NOTES

Expertly made Sauternes that combines crystalline purity with decadent ripe apricot fruit. Marmaladey botrytis notes and subtle spicy wood add complexity.

Largely replanted during the 1950s and 1960s, the Doisy-Daëne vineyard is now well over forty years old.  Traditional
ploughing was performed, and no weedkiller is used in the vineyard. Organic manure is made with vegetal-based composts. Bud removal, trellising and leaf removal was all carefully done by hand.
