The 2014 L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne has a perfumed bouquet with yellow plum, nectarine and orange zest aromas, clean and so precise. The palate is unctuous with a killer line of acidity, tensile and focused with a lemongrass-tinged, powerful finish. Maybe I would like a little more persistence? That’s quibbling though, this is pretty awesome.

The L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne 2014 has a very intense bouquet of wild honey, acacia and orange blossom that soars from the glass. The palate is unctuous, decadent and powerful – completely living up to its name – with layers of honeyed fruit on the long finish. It is like a super-charged Beerenauslese, somehow retaining immense tension and precision on the finish. For hedonists only. Queue up.
