1980 De Fargues, Sauternes

SKU #970054 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A great vintage for de Fargues, the 1980 from this estate is very powerful, opulent, and exotic. The bouquet of coconuts, apricots, grilled almonds, and spicy oak is sensational. In the mouth, the wine is decadently rich, full bodied, and remarkably similar in taste, texture, and viscosity to d’Yquem. Retasted twice in 1989 with equally enthusiastic notes. (RP)  (1/1998)

K&L Notes

From the ancestral home of the Lur-Saluces family, comes this rare, mature Sauternes offering rich flavors of crème brulee and an unctuous mouth feel. Made of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, de Fargues is made by the very same exacting methods employed at d'Yquem.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
