Parker-Martin 93 Punkte: Tasted at the château, the 2007 Château Doisy-Védrines does not achieve the same level of precision as the 2006 on the nose, although there is plenty of botrytis here with scents of melted candle wax and white peach. The palate is vibrant on the entry with impressive weight: hints of orange peel and apricot with a tender, almost understated finish. This improves in the glass, gaining more complexity and nuance and yet never quite demonstrating the sheer ambition as the 2009. Yet I notice even within the limited amount of time at my disposal some melioration in the glass, gaining harmony and tension and so I would not hesitate in decanting this very fine Barsac.
Galloni (91-93) Punkte: Bright, full yellow with gold highlights. Explosively fruity aromas of ripe pineapple and apricot, complicated by saline and clove nuances. Thick, chewy and powerful, with honey and spice flavors currently overshadowing fruit in the middle palate. Builds impressively toward the back, finishing fresh, spicy and long, with a lot of character and noteworthy finesse.
