Chateau de Fargues 1996

Chateau de Fargues – Sauternes

Chateau de Fargues, Sauternes Wine LabelBill Blatch:  Another fine example of this fat-styled vintage, but here the balance is lighter, tighter, younger-tasting and more, how to describe it?, “ethereal” is the word? There is a lift here from the acidity and the new oak that make this wine perfect for all occasions. It is rich, sure, that is the vintage coming through, but it has almost an Yquemy kind of lift and poise that make it vibrant at the same time.
