There is only a tiny amount of the light gold/green-colored 2001 Doisy-Daene l’Extravagant (primarily Sauvignon Blanc). As the name suggests, it is extravagantly rich as well as very full-bodied with extraordinary purity and intensity. The finish lasts for over a minute. There are loads of botrytis in addition to caramelized tropical fruits, zesty acidity, and striking clarity of expression. Anticipated maturity: now-2035. - WA, RP (6/2004)

Liquid honey in appearance. Incredibly ripe with dried apricot, orange and mace. Full-bodied, thick and powerful with amazing richness and spiciness. It goes on and on and on. This concentration is phenomenal. Yet it's lively and spicy. Huge finish. Best after 2012. 140 cases made. –JS WS

Pale gold color. Deeply pitched aromas of honeysuckle, white flowers, minerals, menthol and licorice, with a pungent suggestion of sauvignon blanc. Chewy, dense and fat with fruit; complex, inviting flavors of nectarine, peach syrup, honeysuckle and licorice. Very stylish, long wine with a lingering flavor of peach. There's more going on here than in the 22.- Stephen Tanzer (7/24)
