L’Extravagant de Doisy Daene 2004

L’Extravagant de Doisy Daene – Barsac

Bill Blatch:  That Denis managed to make an excellent Extravagant in 04 is a tribute to the vintage and runs right against the indifference about this vintage. This is amazingly sweet, but it has fantastic “tone” to the fruit that imparts freshness and precision and prevents it from cloying. As always, it comes in hand-blow embossed bottles, each in its individual wooden case. So it makes an excellent gift (I heard the percentage of ice-wine that was used as gifts: more than half) as well as officiating on any occasion where it can be drunk without any food whatsoever.
