Fargues

The same family that once owned Chateau d'Yquem for four centuries (before selling to LVMH in 1999) owns Chateau de Fargues. The vineyard is in a small village on the edge of the Sauternes AC. Even though it does not have the lustre of a classification, the inherent quality is instantly recognisable. In fact, it is one of the most expensive after d'Yquem itself.

De Fargues 2003 (24x37.5cl)

Jancis Robinson (17.5)

Heavy. Not quite enough lift. Very, very big. Very dense, but I would like a little more acidity. Massive! For weightlifters.

This is very concentrated with dried pineapple, honey and caramel. Full-bodied and superdense. Like honey. Massive. From the former head and part owner of Yquem. Score range: 95-100 -JS

De Fargues 2007 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

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.

De Fargues 2008 (24x37.5cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

Tasted single blind against its peers. Whereas last year the de Fargues 2008 was immediately forthcoming, a few months later this example demands much more coaxing from the glass. Eventually, it reveals scents of dried pineapple, limestone and a touch of cooking apple with some VA notes lending it a bit of a “kick.” The palate is medium-bodied with a mellifluous texture. It is very well-balanced with a tangible sense of tension from start to finish, attractive notes of dried honey and quince interlacing the long structured finish. This constitutes a serious Sauternes for the serious Sauternes-lover. Tasted January 2012.
