Chateau de Fargues Sauternes

Wine Details







Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) The Sauternes produced by Château de Fargues is the result of outstanding gifts of nature and the motivation – one might even say the stubbornness – of a family devoted to fine wine, and an attentive, enthusiastic winemaking team. It takes four years to produce wine at Fargues, and work is constantly being done simultaneously on four vintages at any one time. This is how the refinement and delicious taste sensations are procured at Château de Fargues. Its myriad aromas wake up the senses and coat the palate with a host of sensations.

    (1989 Vintage) Rating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 79, July/August 1998. Knockout aromas of creme brulee, white chocolate and raisin; more expressive than the '89 Yquem at the same stage though not especially fruit-driven. Unctuous and very rich, but given cut and clarity by lively notes of orange peel and marmalade. Really lovely concentration and balance. Less evolved than the '88 below. Very long and stylish.
