Chateau de Fargues 2006

Chateau de Fargues – Sauternes

Chateau de Fargues, Sauternes Wine LabelBill Blatch: At a recent blind tasting, this wine came out top of the whole vintage’s Sauternes. It has total concentration but also total finesse. What an Yquem kind of combination! – rich yet incredibly fine. And now that Fargues has doubled its price for recent vintages, this just has to be an insider’s tip for best buy of the offer.
