The de Fargues 2007 delivers 13.9% alcohol and 134 grams of residual sugar. Picking commenced on September 11, with slow botrytis formation and recommenced October 2-24, the picking ale to be conducted at a relatively leisurely pace. It has a very typical de Fargues nose that has lost its tongue at first, but it opens up to reveal a slightly spirituous bouquet with clear honey, pressed flowers, almond and a distant scent of the sea. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and outstanding delineation. It is utterly harmonious with a thrilling, edgy finish that expresses the terroir with great clarity. There is an effervescent quality that really takes the 2007 to another level, while the marmalade and white pepper finish is powerful and leaves a lasting impression. This is a fabulous 2007, one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin

Rich and caressing with gorgeous toasted coconut dried orange ginger cream and mango flavors that all glide through the lush finish where macadamia nut and papaya notes fill in the remaining space.

Rich and caressing with gorgeous toasted coconut dried orange ginger cream and mango flavors that all glide through the lush finish where macadamia nut and papaya notes fill in the remaining space. Offers plenty of depth for the cellar too. Gorgeous. Drink now through 2037. 1750 cases made. -JM

Beautiful light apricot color. The nose boasts lots of stone fruits including peach nectarine and apricot. A little pear is present as well. More fruit driven and less spicy than other examples. This has great acidity and... Beautiful light apricot color. The nose boasts lots of stone fruits including peach nectarine and apricot. A little pear is present as well. More fruit driven and less spicy than other examples. This has great acidity and terrific length. Highly recommended.
