Château de Fargues 2006 White (Sauternes)
A firm, densely structured wine, with the sweetness turned as much into richness. The flavors are of Seville orange zest, the richness coming from honey and almonds, balanced with dry botrytis. An impressive wine that needs time for aging.
Château de Fargues 2011 Barrel sample White (Sauternes)
92-94. Barrel sample. A smooth and rich wine that also shows depth of flavor. Wrapped in its tight texture are notes of peach and mango, bitter orange and lemon zest. It’s a fine wine that should age for many years.
Château de Fargues 2005 Barrel sample White (Sauternes)
87-89 Barrel sample. Almonds, some spice and dryness are the dominant impressions of this wine. It is concentrated, very rich with layers of dense botrytis and flavors of oak and sweet fruit. A success for this lesser-know property.
