A brief history
Château Doisy-Daëne, included among the second growths in the 1855 classification, is located on the Barsac limestone plateau in the Sauternes appellation. It has belonged to the Dubourdieu family since 1924.
Doisy-Daëne produces a great Sauternes wine along with distinguished and unusual dry white Bordeaux: Grand Vin Sec du Château Doisy-Daëne.
During the great vintages, Doisy-Daëne produces a famous and rare cuvée of unequaled richness: L'Extravagant.
Four generations have made fine white wine here from father to son: Georges (1924-1948), Pierre (1949- 1999), and Denis who worked hard to promote Doisy-Daëne’s unique qualities around the world.
Denis Dubourdieu was also Professor of Oenology at Bordeaux University and a consulting oenologist with an international reputation. Since 2016, his sons Fabrice and Jean-Jacques have taken over managing the estate.
Château Doisy-Daëne’s 18.2 hectares of vines (86% Sémillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc) are over 40 years old.
The wines have their own special style, with bright fruit concentrated by “noble rot” as well as lively acidity, excellent balance, and delicate flavours. Doisy-Daëne’s much-appreciated personality reflects both its excellent limestone terroir and a long family tradition of quality.
