The power and fabulous richness of this wine is indescribable. Furthermore, the redeemed alcohol content of l'Extravagant de Doisy-Daene is higher, (13 to 14.5%) than most wines made with extremely sweet musts produced anywhere in the world. This gives it a remarkable balance and absolutely unique character.

Wine AdvocateThere is only a tiny amount of the light gold/green-colored 2001 Doisy-Daene l'Extravagant (primarily Sauvignon Blanc). As the name suggests, it is extravagantly rich as well as very full-bodied with extraordinary purity and intensity. The finish lasts for over a minute. There are loads of botrytis in addition to caramelized tropical fruits, zesty acidity, and striking clarity of expression. Anticipated maturity: now-2035.

Wine SpectatorLiquid honey in appearance. Incredibly ripe with dried apricot, orange and mace. Full-bodied, thick and powerful with amazing richness and spiciness. It goes on and on and on. This concentration is phenomenal. Yet it's lively and spicy. Huge finish. Best after 2012. 140 cases made.
