Poured from magnum at the property, the 1981 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines is rather muted at first, but unfurls to reveal notes of quince, barley sugar and citrus lemon. Not complex, but a bouquet you might describe as “correct” for a mature Barsac. The palate is fresh and simple, good acidity, lacks botrytized fruit as one might expect from this vintage, with orange peel, lemon, a touch of ginger and dried apricot. It has a foursquare finish and feels very linear, but it retains its freshness from start to finish. Tasted November 2008. Aug 2015, www.robertparker.com
