This noble manor and its vineyards were once called Doizic, and during the middle of the 17th century, belonged to Jean Raymond, a Registrar with the Guyenne Borard of Excice. Tasted several vintages recently. Beautiful nose of ripe sweet fruit and complex spice. On the palate aromatic flavors of peach & apricot emerge with citrus zest and sweet spice. Still tasting great, sweet and fresh. Lingering finish ending pleasantly fresh and sweet. Good value. Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago
Thick, sweet, syrupy nectar with a touch of walnut and a hint of pepper (from the Semillon). Beautiful amber color. A nice complement to hamachi crudo. — 12 days ago
Wednesday Wine Committee “Founder’s Day”, honoring those who started this tradition back in the ‘70s. What an incredible group and tradition they started!
Special wine...this was taken from the cellar of one of the original founders. Loads of orange peel, citrus, banana peel and some caramel. Not nutty, nor overly sweet like many Sauternes. Older than I am! — 22 days ago
Elegant, luscious but youthful so it isn't yet fully developed. Lovely pineapple and apricot, we'll balanced acidity but will gain depth with more time in the bottle — 19 days ago
An astounding sticky, nose of candied melon. Liquid pear and peach extract delivered on clouds framed by whispers of lemon and lime zest. Among the best Sauternes I’ve had, and the stuffing to improve for at least 10 years. Thanks, John @tavernsquare, brilliant as ever! — 9 days ago
Honey and apricot and gas and clear botrytis influence and lush but clear acidity. Awesome — 6 days ago
