Chateau de Fargues, Sauternes – Verticle Tasting

A stunning 17 vintages of Chateau de Fargues, one of the very best Sauternes wines, are covered in the two videos below. The Sauternes go back to 1983 and including the great 1988, 1989, 1990, 2001, 2005 and 2009 vintages.

My thanks go to Compte Alexandre de Lur-Saluces, owner of Chateau de Fargues, for allowing us to film this exceptional tasting and to Charles Taylor MW, who is writing a book on Bordeaux and for whom this tasting was organised.  As always thanks too to Max Amiraut, the cellarmaster at de Fargues, and his assistant Corinne.  Enjoy!  Bill Blatch

    Enjoyed reading your blog after being alerted through Twitter. Can confirm that it rained a lot overnight in Gironde and more forecast for tonight and tomorrow (7/8 Sep).

    However, have never tasted a verticle – sounds a bit like a notorious arabian delicacy!

    Great news for the reds although it will be interesting to see when the Botrytis arrives in Sauternes and at what rate – too much too soon can be difficult to handle.
