The Chateau de Fargues 2010 has a fresh and vibrant, well-delineated bouquet with peaches and cream, quince and buttercup on the pretty nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is taut and linear on the entry with a silver thread of acidity lending this Sauternes race and class. There is ample freshness here and an effervescent quality that lends its life and vigor. Vivacious and appealing, this should age well for the next 20-30 years, possibly more. To repeat my comment from barrel: “This is another great de Fargues.” Chapeau! Drink 2016-2035+. - NEAL MARTIN

Unctuous and nicely formed already with juicy apricot green fig and honey notes. The finish is lush but with nice cut showing hints of toasted coconut and almond. Sneakily long. -J.M.

Aromas of lemon yellow peach passion fruit and flowers are by rosewater and a lovely hint of spicy botrytis. Fresh and sweet in the mouth with excellent balance to its smooth rich tropical fruit citrus and honeyed flavors. This seductive and very sweet wine struck me as a rather atypical Fargues in its restrained delivery of aromas and flavors; while it's not as flamboyant or explosively decadent as de Fargues usually is it boasts sneaky concentration. High but well-integrated acidity keeps it very light on its feet.

Very aromatic sweet wine the palate suffused with acidity as well as dried apricots fresh in character the spicy element adding to the structure of the wine.
