Château Doisy-Védrines | Sauternes

Château Doisy-Védrines in Sauternes

The Chevaliers de Védrines owned this estate for centuries and gave their name to it. Included in the 1855 classification as a 2éme Cru Classé Sauternes property it has been owned by the Castéja family since 1946. The family also own Château Batailley in Paulliac and Château Trotte Vieille Saint Emilion Grand Cru. 

Doisy-Védrines is located on the clay-limestone rise in Haut Barsac. The soil is ploughed the traditional way and the grapes are picked by hand in several waves (up to 6 or 8 passes). Fermentation and ageing take place in barrels (exclusively French oak). The combination of modern and traditional techniques gives Château Doisy-Védrines its trademark richness and finesse typical of the great growths of Sauternes. It needs at least 5 years of bottle ageing and the best vintages will keep for up to 25 years.
