Château Doisy-Védrines

Tasting Notes

Thanks to the botrytis, this wine develops aromas of exotic fruits, quinces and orange. There is a lot of complexity in this wine, a good length in the mouth and a delicious smooth finish.

Food Matches

An excellent wine as an aperitif or alternatively try with blue cheese like Stilton.

Vinification

The grapes are handpicked. Only botrysised grapes are selected. Fermentation in barrels. Winemaker is Hervé Romat.
