The largest of the Doisy properties has made one of the most powerful sweet wines of the vintage, verging on extravagance. Plush, oaky and concentrated, with ginger spice, plenty of honeyed sweetness and a foundation of rich nectarine and pineapple fruit.

The 2015 Doisy-Vedrines has quite an intense nose, perhaps less fat and honeyed than recent vintages, more finesse if not quite capturing the same level of details as the Doisy-Daëne this year. The palate is very promising with layers of honeyed fruit tinged with white chocolate and almond, a lovely swagger about this Doisy-Vedrines that reminds me of great vintages such as 1989. Always well priced, you won't harm your cellar with a case of Olivier Castèja's sumptuous Barsac. Drinking range: 2019 - 2040 Rating: 93-95 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Apr 2016)
Deep gold. Broad pear-juice nose. Massive weight and some spice. Big and bold. Dramatic weight even if not the raciness of the other Doisy. Clear botrytis influence. Drinking range: 2027 - 2042 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2016)
The nose on this barrel sample is rich in pithy fruit, with some citrus tones, but also some richer nuances of yellow plum. The palate is full and substantial, mirroring the nose with some crystalline yellow plum scents, also a more fleshy yellow peach character, pineapple and a little quartzy note. It has a huge charged energy in the finish. An impressive effort. Rating: 16.5-17.5/20 Chris Kissack, www.thewinedoctor.com(Apr 2016)
Reticent aromas of sweet spices, mango and crystallised ginger emerge slowly with aeration. Rich, dense and tactile, with honeyed tropical fruit, lively lemon and spicy tangerine flavours. Some noble rot, but passerillage (dried grapes) present. From 35-year-old vines, and made with a rare 5% Muscadelle. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027 Rating: 92 Ian d'Agata, Decanter(Apr 2016)
A plumper, richer style than most Barsacs, with almond cream, ginger and hazelnut accents starting to develop alongside the orange, apricot and peach flavors. Offers a lovely feel. Rating: 93—96 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator(Apr 2016)
This has phenolic tension and power with so much dried fruit character from pineapple to mango. Full, medium sweet and lively. Really excellent. Rating: 95-96 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Mar 2016)
Château Doisy Védrines
Barsac Deuxième cru 1855 As one might expect, there was originally one Doisy estate. Sometime in the earlier 19th Century, it was divided into three parts - two smaller parts were sold to the Dubroca brothers and Jean-Jacques Emmanuel Daëne becoming the rarely encountered Château Doisy-Dubroca and Château Doisy-Daëne respectively, whilst the larger proportion became Château Doisy-Védrines. In 1851, it was purchased by the Boireau family who's descendents the, Castéja family, own Doisy-Védrines to this day. Around 30ha of vineyard are planted with 85% Semillon and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation is in stainless-steel before and 18 month aging period in oak, of which 70% is new. Doisy-Védrines is a richer rounder style than Doisy-Daëne. Interestingly, although entitled to the Barsac appellation, the wines are always labelled as Sauternes.
