Soils:
The terroir of Barsac plateau is a unique geological formation in Bordeaux. A thin layer of clayey sands "the Barsac red sands" covers the limestone subsoil. This rock slab lightly cracked limits the rooting depth of the vine to about 50 cm. During the summer, the slightly porous rock returns to the vine the water it was soaked during the winter, avoiding excessive water stress. This type of soil, gives exceptionally fine white wines.

Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon

Winemaking & breeding

Upon maturity, a few bunches are collected on each vine in all the Sauvignon plots. After a possible phase of skin contact, the slow juice extraction is carried out free of oxidation. run must be strictly separated from press must and their clarification by natural settling. Fermentation takes place in barrels renewed by fifth. 
Ageing lasts 8 months with lees regularly stirred.

Tasting

The Grand Vin Sec Doisy-Daëne is one of the best dry white wines of Bordeaux. Little brother of Doisy-Daëne Barsac, it expresses in a different register all the distinction and finesse of this exceptional terroir. On a singular aromatic power, with aromas of grapefruit and white peach, it develops on the palate mineral notes and flavors of pear and spice. Both young delicious and a great aging potential (5 to 10 years).
