2016 Chateau Doisy Daene 'L'Extravagant' Sauternes .375ml (half bottle) PRE-ARRIVAL

$199.95
WA96-98

Château d'Yquem has few peers in Sauternes, and this is chief among them. The Wine Advocate describes a crisp and detailed bouquet that is remarkable for a wine imbued with such concentration and richness. The palate is unctuous on the entry, and yet that is barely noticeable thanks to the killer line of acidity. This is a vivid, extraordinary Sauternes that is difficult to fault." Great stuff defined!

Wine Advocate

The 2016 L'Extravagant from Doisy Daene has a crisp and detailed bouquet that is remarkable for a wine imbued with such concentration and richness. The palate is unctuous on the entry, and yet that is barely noticeable thanks to the killer line of acidity (exactly like the 2014 I tasted beforehand). The is a vivid, extraordinary Sauternes that is difficult to fault.
