2023 is a blend of 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc.

Pale gold with vibrant edging, starts with concentrated and intense clove spices, luscious apricot fruit, opening to show juicy, sculpted slivers of steel and lime juice. A return to form for this excellent Barsac wine after the succulent but unbalanced 2022. Great stuff from this legendary Dubourdieu property, although once again the yields are extremely low and the character is more concentrated than you find in vintages like 2021.
95 Jane Anson.

The 2023 Doisy-Daëne takes time to unfurl on the nose. Notes of lemon curd, dried peach and a touch of marmalade are all nicely defined, developing subtle pithy elements with aeration. The palate is just wonderful. Very harmonious with perfectly judged acidity, it’s extremely pure with a tensile finish. This is Barsac in full flight. It will be outstanding once bottled. Bravo!
95-97 Neal Martin.

There’s a refined focus and beauty to this, with spice and honey character. Medium-bodied, sweet and poised. Flavourful at the end, in an elegant way, with density and tension.
93-94 James Suckling.
