Château Doisy-Daëne Grand Vin Sec 2010 Bordeaux White Wine (100% Sauvignon Blanc), $23.19-$28.99, 90+ points, poured a dark copper/gold color trending a blue/gray at the glass shallows.
Not an outstanding aroma, but melon, cantaloupe, and citrus notes were okay.
Light-plus body carried good acidity with rich melon and lemon flavors.
Finished long on the trailing palate, pear, a touch of ginger, lemon/lime, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
I don't usually think of Sauvignon Blanc as elegant or sophisticated, but this Château Doisy-Daëne comes close.
