Château Doisy-Daëne

The winery is located in the municipality of Barsac in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin dates back to 1677, when Jean Raymond took over an agricultural estate called Doisic (later Doisy). The first vineyards were probably created only by the family offspring. The family Védrines was in 1704 by marriage owner of the property. In the first half of the 19th century, the estate was divided into three parts, namely the representational Château Doisy-Daëne (which was taken over by the wine merchant Jean Jacques Emmanuel Daëne), Château Doisy-Dubroca and Château Doisy-Védrines, Anyway, at the Bordeaux Classification 1855 (for Sauternes) all three goods classified in second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).

After several ownership changes, in which also vineyards between the three goods went back and forth, the estate was finally taken over in 1924 by Georges Dubourdieu, since 2000 it is from the grandson Denis Dubourdieu (* 1949) led. The vineyards cover 16 hectares of vineyards with Sémillon (87%), Sauvignon Blanc (12%) and Muscadelle (1%). The long-lived noble sweet wine is matured for ten months in 100% new oak barrels. In special years small quantities of the selection "L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne" are produced. The second wine is called "Château Cantegril".
