The 2016 L'Extravagant from Doisy Daene has a crisp and detailed bouquet that is remarkable for a wine imbued with such concentration and richness. The palate is unctuous on the entry, and yet that is barely noticeable thanks to the killer line of acidity (exactly like the 2014 I tasted beforehand). The is a vivid, extraordinary Sauternes that is difficult to fault. Read more

Pale lemon colored, the 2016 L'Extravagant has an electric nose of lime cordial, grapefruit, fresh pineapple and orange blossom with nuances of acacia honey, peach blossoms and chalk dust. Super sweet, super rich and fantastically pure, the palate possesses amazing intensity with a great line of acid to balance and a very, very long finish.

A fine follow on from the excellent 2015, this is rich and succulent. It's the persistency and depth of flavour that's so striking in l'Extravagance. Fabrice and Jean Jacques Dubourdieu have been making this wine for many years, with their father Denis overseeing things. All the offices have now moved here from Château Reynon also. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050

Pretty lemon peel, grapefruit, yellow apple chutney and white ginger notes stream through in this sweet yet very sleek dessert wine. The finish has a porcelainlike feel and lovely purity, lingering with acacia and orange blossom notes. Best from 2024 through 2038. 117 cases made.  –JM

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2016 Doisy-Daëne L'Extravagant is a gorgeous wine. A rush of coconut, passion fruit, mint and lime notes make a strong opening statement. Plush and unctuous on the palate, the 2016 offers notable depth and persistence. In 2016, the Extravagant is not quite as opulent as it can be, and while it is stylistically very different from the straight Doisy-Daëne, it is not meaningfully more complex. All that said, the Extravagant is one of the finer Sauternes of the vintage.

Really racy and ethereal. Wonderful stuff! Oak is still a little obvious but there is such glorious concentration of all the elements of a great Sauternes, it is to be celebrated.  Drink 2024-2044 18/20
