The 2015 L'Extravagant de Doisy Daene has a powerful, intense but very pure bouquet laden with acacia honey, peach and quince, yet very defined and not at all overwhelming - remarkable given the richness locked into this Sauternes. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual, rounded, honeyed fruit, plenty of botrytis as you would expect, but leavened with a keen line of acidity. The finish offers peach and nectarine mixed with wild honey and a dash of spice to complete a fabulous wine from Denis Dubourdieu. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

A scintillating wine, with apricot, pear and nectarine notes that are rich yet piercing. Heather and jasmine details gild the finish, which is very long and shows serious cut. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A 100% Sauvignon Blanc! 'It was the first time we ever dared to do it,' said Denis Dubourdieu. Elegant if reticent nose of lemon jelly, melon and saffron. Extremely rich and concentrated on the palate with a viscous mouthfeel and pure, fresh citrus and sweet spice flavours. Three barriques only were made, with roughly 204g/l residual sugar and 9g/l total acidity. Excellent and racy but lacks the weight provided by Semillon.

Lusciously sweet (with 204 grams of sugar), exotic and enticingly aromatic, Denis Dubourdieu’s top sweet wine is a triumph in 2015, with pepper spice, lemon curd and saffron notes, a slight volatile lift and fresh, focused, palate-cleansing acidity from its unusually high percentage of Sauvignon Blanc. Stunning stuff. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2018-2030
