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 de Fargues has just a little more residual sugar than succeeding vintages at 142-grams- per-liter and an alcohol of 13.65%. Picked over five tries from September 27 until exactly one month later, it has a slightly more resinous bouquet than the mighty 2007 with melted candle wax, Seville orange marmalade, a touch of almond and peach skin. The definition is (as usual) very impressive. The palate is very well-balanced with marmalade and orange peel on the entry. There is good weight and presence here, although it is more contained and focused than the 2007. The oak is just a little more pronounced and it would benefit from another five or six years in bottle before broaching. Tasted April 2013. - 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
