The de Fargues 2001 is consistent with its showing 12 months ago at the property. Here, it has a hedonistic, quite powerful bouquet that demands you attention with that suggestion of Manuka honey (my own personal favorite since discovering it in New Zealand) defining the aromatics. The palate is extremely well balanced and viscous, struck through with great tension and yet like before, it does not quite unleash that knockout blow that distinguishes a truly great de Fargues. - Neal Martin

Winery

Chateau de Fargues

Chateau de Fargues is one of the oldest estates in the Sauternes appellation of Bordeaux and has been in the Lur Saluces family since 1472. Wine production only began in the 19th century, and not until 1935 were white grapes planted.

Chateau de Fargues’ 17 hectares of vines are located on a clay-gravel plateau with a clay and hardpan subsoil. The vines are an average of 35 years old and consist of two varieties: Semillon (80%), which gives richness, roundness, and structure to the wine, and Sauvignon Blanc (20%), which contributes wonderful aromas.
