The Chevaliers de Védrines owned this estate for centuries and passed down their name. Included in the 1855 Classification, it was acquired by the present owners in the mid-19th century. Doisy-Védrines is located on the clay-limestone rise in Haut-Barsac. The soil is ploughed the traditional way and the grapes are picked by hand in several waves (up to 6 or 8). Fermentation and ageing take place in barrels (exclusively French oak). The combination of modern and traditional techniques gives Château Doisy-Védrines its trademark richness and finesse typical of the finest wines of Sauternes. Annual production amounts to 36,000 bottles. When young, the wine is well-balanced and very delicious, especially as an aperitif. Older vintages are a delight at the end of a meal.
