Chateau Doisy-Védrines – Second Growth Barsac

Bill Blatch: Rather like at Coutet, here is a wine whose big richness worried me at first for an estate known for its very refreshing delicate style of Barsac. But now, all those tell-tale notes of white peach and fresh oak are beginning to come through and this is turning into a real classic. It gives a lot of pleasure now but I can see this as a lovely wine once it develops its secondary aromas in a few years time. Whatever, it’s a classic.
