Chateau de Fargues Sauternes 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
|Brand||Chateau de Fargues|
Wine AdvocateThe Chateau de Fargues 2010 has a fresh and vibrant, well-delineated bouquet with peaches and cream, quince and buttercup on the pretty nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is taut and linear on the entry with a silver thread of acidity lending this Sauternes race and class. There is ample freshness here and an effervescent quality that lends its life and vigor. Vivacious and appealing, this should age well for the next 20-30 years, possibly more. To repeat my comment from barrel: “This is another great de Fargues.” Chapeau! Drink 2016-2035+.
Wine SpectatorUnctuous 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. (Barrel Tasting)
Wine EnthusiastVery aromatic, sweet wine, the palate suffused with acidity as well as dried apricots, fresh in character, the spicy element adding to the structure of the wine. (Barrel Sample)
