The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. This is a class act: very harmonious and poised, a judicious dash of spice with a very harmonious and persistent finish. Superb. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin collapse

Full-bodied and concentrated, with wicked backbone of acid, the densely packed, multi-layered palate delivers layer upon layer of electrically charged citrus and tropical fruit notes, finishing very long with loads of savory nuances.-LPB collapse

Wine Spectator, April 2011
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.

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.
