This is so creamy almost milky in feel with toasted coconut and cashew notes giving way to sweet peach apricot and glazed pear flavors that glide along while ginger green tea lychee and kumquat flavors extend through the finish. Shows terrific range and definition. Feels like it's just starting to open and is in no rush. Drink now through 2035. -JM

The 2005 Château de Fargues has a rich and intense bouquet with layers of honey, dried peach, beeswax and acacia that soar from the glass. The palate is powerful and authoritative: intense botrytis-rich honeyed fruit with compelling mineralité underneath. It fans out in glorious fashion – a stunning de Fargues that is now beginning to show its talents. As I remarked a couple of years ago, just afford it a couple more years so that it can fully absorb the vestiges of oak. - Neal Martin

Exotic high-toned apricot spices and flowers on the nose complemented by coconutty toasty oak. Very sweet and unctuous with exotic nobly rotten flavors of pineapple apricot and coconut and an impression of elevated alcohol. Not quite as racy fruity or structured as the 2007; conveys an impression of softer acidity and yet this maintains a light touch. Finishes with suggestions of vanilla and marzipan.

Very sweet and quite exciting. Racy and deep with layers. Very long. 17/20
