Chateau de Fargues 2002

Chateau de Fargues – Sauternes

Chateau de Fargues, Sauternes Wine LabelBill Blatch:  This is another fabulous experience. By now, with ownership no longer twinned with Yquem, the wine has become even more individual and in my opinion, even more expressive of its terroir. No longer are one-year old Yquem barrels used, but here there is now some new oak coming in, and this, in a vintage like 2002 gives a wonderful lift to an already vibrant style of wine. This is mouth-wateringly fresh, with a zesty acidity but a lovely fat sweetness too. Similar to the much more expensive 07.
