Awesome Sauternes. Definitely on the lighter and slightly less sweet side, I think this is Barsac even though it's labeled Sauternes on the front. (the cork and back label say Barsac). Orange marmalade, ginger, honey, poached peaches and pears, and a bit of baking spice. Very rich but not too cloying as far as Sauternes goes. Medium to medium + body, medium + acid, plenty sweet as you'd expect. Wonderful soft texture. Amazing alongside the post-dinner cheese plate. — 3 years ago
A blend of mostly Semillon with some Sauvignon Blanc. Deep lemon color with concentrated aromas of ripe fruit and sweet honey. On the palate you can taste the layers from sweet ripe fruit to honey to nutty notes adding in a touch of citrus. Long finish with an elegant ending. A beauty from Olivier Casteja. Had this for Mom’s birthday. — 16 days ago
Drank 4/26/18 at a tasting event.
2nd wine of Climens. Nose of pineapple and honeyed apricots, with some slight volatility that blows off after a few minutes. Flavors of pineapple and some light honey, without the depth or richness of the Climens. Decent wine, but would vastly prefer the Doisy Vedrines for around the same price.

Perfect end to the evening. Light since this is still young but a great long finish. — 5 years ago
Second wine from Château Doisy-Védrines from excellent 2007 vintage. This is half bottle for $10! Medium to golden yellow in color. Smell of apricot, pineapple, hint of mango and lime, medium body, sweet with good acidity and good long finish. Tasty and such a sweet deal! — 5 years ago
