Chateau de Fargues Sauternes 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
|Brand||Chateau de Fargues|
Wine AdvocateThe Chateau de Fargues has a very pure nose of clear honey, lemon curd and passion fruit all with fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus-driven entry with touches of lime, passion fruit and grapefruit. It has great focus and "drive," a crescendo of flavours that embrace quince, Seville orange, tangerine and spice. There is wonderful persistency towards the powerful finish. This is another great de Fargues to follow the monumental 2009.
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)
