Replanted in its vast majority between the 50's and 60's, the Château Doisy-Daëne vineyard is over forty years old. It is current size is approx. 18 hectares. With a density of 7,000 plants per hectare, it is planted with 86 % Sémillon and 14 % Sauvignon.
Traditional ploughing is performed on the soil of the vineyard and no weed-killer is used.
Organic manures are made with vegetal-based composts. Bud removal, trellising and leaf removal are carefully done by hand. Chateau Doisy-Daëne are engaged in a process of abandonment of the use of chemical synthetic pesticides on all of our vineyards.
Thus "grown like in a garden", within an orderly and well preserved environment, the vines produce early concentrated tasty grapes which have the smoothness and brightness of fresh fruit aromas we wish to obtain in our wines.
In an effort to balance the carbon footprint, the estate manages as well a forest area equal in size to the vineyards.
Doisy-Daëne produces a great Sauternes wine along with distinguished and unusual dry white Bordeaux: Grand Vin Sec du Château Doisy-Daëne.
During the great vintages, Doisy-Daëne produces a famous and rare cuvée of unequalled richness: L'Extravagant.
