Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the château, the 2002 Château Doisy-Védrines has a slightly disjointed bouquet with undergrowth and waxy aromas on the nose. The palate is fresh on the entry and well balanced. It feels rich with plenty of botrytis for the vintage,weighty on the waxy-textured finish with orange zest, quince and fig. If the nose could find a little more breeding then this would deserve a higher score but as such, it is a vintage that I would be approaching now rather than later.
