(06-2013) The de Fargues 2007 delivers 13.9% alcohol and 134 grams of residual sugar. 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.

(10-2009) Lemon colour. Subtle nose of freshly-cut flowers, mild spices and flower honey. Beautiful structure, powerful yet fresh with long-lasting, clearly-defined aromas. An extremely pure wine in the quintessential style of the house.

(01-2013) Rich, lively and gushing with sweet, honey coated tropical fruits, flowers, spice and vanilla custard, the wine is long, sweet, mouth filling and fresh. If the wine fills out as it matures, and it just might, it should easily upgrade another point or two. This is a really nice style of Sauternes.

(10-2009) Very complex and heady on the nose. A step up from most. Even the glass feels heavy. This is a really good Sauternes in the traditional mould. Great stuff! Mass above subtlety perhaps but tant mieux! Great energy. Lots to get your teeth into. Still a bit astringent but there is so much energy here... Pear juice.
