Château Doisy-Daëne

The estate is located in the municipality of Barsac in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin is in 1677, when Jean Raymond took over an agricultural property called Doisic (later Doisy). The first vineyards were probably only created by the family descendants. The Védrines family became the owner of the property in 1704 through marriage. In the first half of the 19th century, the property was divided into three parts: the present Château Doisy-Daëne (which was taken over by the wine merchant Jean Jacques Emmanuel Daëne), Chateau 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 changes of ownership, in which vineyards also went back and forth between the three estates, the estate was finally taken over by Georges Dubourdieu in 1924, and since 2000 it has been owned by grandson Denis Dubourdieu (* 1949) managed. The vineyards cover 16 hectares of vines with Sémillon (87%), Sauvignon Blanc (12%) and Muscadelle (1%). The long-lasting noble sweet wine is aged in 100% new barriques for ten months. In special years, small quantities of the "L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne" are produced. The second wine is called "Château Cantegril".
