Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16Light gold. Rich and round and lively. Some zest as well as great weight. Good stuff!Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94Richly layered and detailed, but thoroughly mouthwatering, this lets lacy citrus, floral and white peach flavors meld into a core of quince, fig and persimmon fruit, while warm piecrust and honey roasted almond notes drive through the finish. Very long, with superb cut despite its power.Author: James Molesworth
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Tasted at the chateau, the 2009 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines already exudes impressive breeding on the nose with complex, beguiling scents of dried honey, quince, walnut and just a touch of barley sugar. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of viscous, honeyed fruit, superb acidity and wonderful precision on the finish. There is a sense of completeness and harmony to this Doisy-Vedrines. The 2009 represents the apogee for the estate and a Barsac destined to generously repay long-term cellaring.Author: Neal Martin
