2007 de Fargues, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 de Fargues is just a little smudged at first on the nose, so putting it aside for 10-15 minutes, it soon gains more clarity and develops engaging aromas of clear honey, barley sugar, a touch of quince and pear, in many ways more Barsac in style than Sauternes. The palate is beautifully balanced on the entry with touches of lemon curd, barley sugar, pear, apple-blossom and ginger, the finish more persistent than it showed at primeur, lingering like a temptress with illicit intentions." (04/10) 92-96 points Wine Spectator: "Wow. This is really beautiful, with loads of ripe, spicy and sweet fruit, bright acidity and a long, spicy finish. Impressive richness. Very, very long. Very classy." (Web 08) 91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Sexy, rot-enobled aromas of orange, pineapple, coconut and honey. Lush, high-toned and superconcentrated, with apricot, honey and barley sugar flavors framed by racy acidity. Finishes smooth and fresh, with a strong flavor of pineapple." (Jul/Aug 08) K&L's notes: *+ Rich and oily. Thick-huge wine. Should be great. At UGC: rich style and very lush on the palate. Long and deep. Ralph: * Super fat and rich. Everyone will love it.
