Chateau de Fargues 1999

Chateau de Fargues – Sauternes

Chateau de Fargues, Sauternes Wine LabelBill Blatch:  Here the softness and power of the vintage are given a huge lift from the energy and grace of the Fargues style, always the more acid of the top growths, and here benefiting one final time from the total use of one year old Yquem barrels. It has a lovely fragrance, fresh and vibrant, followed by a typically ‘99 rather heavy finish (it has, after all 122 g/l of residual), but the sweetness and fruit carry through nicely and make for an exquisite balance. This is real refinement.
