L’Extravagant de Doisy Daene 2003

L’Extravagant de Doisy Daene – Barsac

Bill Blatch: This wine which started as an experiment in 1990 by Denis Dubourdieu, owner of Doisy Daene and yeast specialist at the Faculty, to see if he could educate yeasts to work on ultra rich musts is now produced most years, albeit in tiny quantities. This 03 is exceptionally sweet, more than 20 g/l residual, has a whopping great sweetness to the mouth feel but is somehow at the same time beautifully fresh. I can only recommend drinking it in the same context as you would a Canadian ice wine: on its own; not with the dessert: it is the dessert.
