Château de Fargues 2001 Sauternes

Brilliant straw yellow colour. Wonderful, complex bouquet of ripe fruit, apricot, jam and vanilla, followed by hints of honey, almond, citrus zest and that touch of mineral freshness typical of Château de Fargues. Starts out very round and full on the palate. The acidity balances out the rich sweetness and gives the wine depth and an endlessly long aftertaste. This vintage is the perfect blend of complexity, power and elegance.

Press:

"Still in barrel, this Château d'Yquem look-alike exhibits powerful crème brûlée characteristics along with some volatile acidity, huge, full-bodied, unctuously textured flavours, ample intensity as well as purity, and caramelized tropical fruits. This brawny heavyweight requires 5-6 years of bottle age, and should evolve for three decades" - 96 Points. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, June 2004.
