The 18.2 hectare Chateau Doisy Daene is planted to 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc. Although there is a small section of vines planted to Muscadelle as well. This marks a change in the vineyard, as today, you find a higher percentage of Semillon planted.
Situated quite close to Chateau Climens, in Barsac, the vineyard has a terroir that consists of red sand, clay and limestone soils. The vines are planted to a density of 7,000 vines per hectare. On average, the vines are maintained at 35 years of age.
Aside from their sweet, white Bordeaux wine, which is their mainstay, Chateau Doisy Daene produces two additional wines. They make a dry white wine from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, which is sold as a Bordeaux blanc. This is denoted by the term Grand Vin Sec, which appears on the label.
