"Plump and forward, this delivers peach, nectarine and candied lemon peel notes gilded with lots of honeysuckle and heather. A flash of bitter almond helps streamline everything through the racy finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. 2,208 cases made.–JM " (WS)

"The 2015 Doisy-Daene has a detailed bouquet, very correct, nothing showy or flamboyant as is typical of Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac. The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet! Just a wonderful wine - full of class and nascent joie-de-vivre. Chapeau Denis!" (WA)

"The 2015 Doisy-Daëne is compellingly beautiful. Beams of crushed rocks, petrol, lime and white flowers give the 2015 distinct Riesling-like inflections. Candied citrus, passion fruit and a host of more tropically-leaning notes develop in the glass. Creamy, textured and yet also light on its feet, the 2015 is a wine of total precision and class." (VM)

"A very fresh and elegant style, but this is no lightweight. Rather, it’s got a long, very focused finish with some minerality that’s really uplifting. I love the bright candied-lemon character on the nose. This is already beautifully balanced, but only just beginning to open up. Should keep for several decades if properly cellared." (JS)

"Another blockbuster Barsac is the 2015 Château Doisy Daëne from proprietor Denis Dubourdieu. This huge, opulent, awesome wine gives up layers of white peach, caramelized citrus, and white flowers, and stays shockingly pure, polished, and precise on the palate for a wine of this richness and scale. It’s an awesome wine to drink over the coming 2-3 decades." (JD)

"94–96. Barrel Sample. This is opulent and rich, with wonderful gingery spice and layers of acidity and orange zest. The wine is full of pure, clean and ripe fruit flavors. -Roger Voss" (WE)

"All the ripe, and overripe pineapple you can handle, with the added pleasures of sweet, apricot, orange and vanilla bean all coated with honey. Vibrancy counts here, which keeps the wine uplifted on your palate. 2965 Views Tasted Mar 12, 2018 (JL)
