One of the most plush, flamboyant wines of the year, the 2015 Doisy-Daëne L' Extravagant lives up to its name. Apricot jam, coconut, crème brulée, spice and exotic white flowers meld together in a Sauternes of exquisite beauty. This is a gorgeous wine from the late Denis Dubourdieu.

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.
