Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 1989
Chateau Doisy Vedrines was once part of the vast Doisy estate which also included Chateau Doisy Daene and Chateau Doisy Dubroca. Of the three estates, with its 27 hectares of vines, it’s the largest estate.
Neal Martin: "Tasted at the Doisy-Védrines vertical at the château, the 1989 Château Doisy-Védrines sports a similar colour to the 1990 with big fat tears in the glass. The nose is more introverted than the 1990, perhaps a little tertiary with honey, marmalade, fig and barley sugar. The palate is medium-bodied, more viscous than the 1990, very rounded, smooth and seductive with almost lush honeyed fruit, marmalade and quince. There is a lot of botrytis underpinning the rich, sensuous finish. It represents a serious Barsac for long-term ageing.Tasted September 2008." 95 points
