For over 80 years three generations of Dubourdieu’s have produced sweet white wines: Georges (1924-1948), Pierre (1949-1999) and Denis since 2000. Bouquet of ripe sweet stone fruits and sweet floral scents. On the palate peach, apricot and honey flavors adding in some nutty sweet oak encompassed by complex botrytis, "noble rot" fruit. Lingering finish ending with sweet smoky character. Very Nice, best of the vertical I tasted. Tasting Sample!

Slightly tropical, passion fruit, nice acid underneath. A little dense and sweet alongside the others.

Doisy is known for its nose and being a heavy dense wine. This wine lives up to that. It was made with 80% semillon and 20% Sauvignon. A slight taste of alcohol. A lot of botrytis with dried apricots.

Vintage 2004 - orange gold, smells like apricot and marzipan, a hint of botytris, silky structure, good concentration. Is this a good choice 😳 on a warm summerday? 😉😀

So delicious for a young sauternes. Golden honey, acid, light caramel, and a crisp grapefruit note.

Picnick by the Tyne in Corbridge. Lovely nose of honey, apricots, and mandarin rind, with hints of peach kernel, and a mixed palette of Swiss mountain flowers. Lovely acidity and great length - just a touch too much bitterness in there somewhere?
