Wine Advocate-Parker : Tasted at the Doisy-Védrines vertical at the château, the 2000 Château Doisy-Védrines is lacking a little freshness and fruit intensity on the nose. There are aromas of cold stone and a touch of apple and grapefruit, although they are not particularly engaging. The palate is better, medium-bodied, moderate fruit intensity with light honeyed, apricot-tinged fruit. It has decent acidity but it lacks weight and complexity on the finish, feels clipped. Tasted September 2008.
