Tasting Notes:
rated: April 15, 2012 , The Wine Advocate erobertparker.com
96 points "95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The aromatics on the Doisy-Daene comes racing out of the blocks like a March hare, soaring from the glass with honey, quince and lychee aromas with a sorbet like freshness and vivacity. The palate is supremely well balanced with a heightened level of tension and purity, offering delectable but subtle notes of white peach and apricot towards the beautifully composed, mineral-rich finish. Curiously, it reminds me of a top-flight Mosel Auslese, but what a fabulous Barsac from Denis Dubourdieu! (4/ 2012)"

96 points "95-98 points Wine Spectator - Very backward today, with viscous green plum, green almond, quince, pineapple, fig and pear notes still assimilating one another. The long, toasted almond- and ginger-filled finish has terrific depth. (4/ 2012)"
rated: April 15, 2012 , James Suckling
92 points "92-93 points James Suckling - A dense wine with honey, spice and butterscotch undertones. Full and very sweet. Turns spicy on the finish. Lots of botrytis character. (4/ 2012)"
