2010 de Fargues, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1341801 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A powerful Sauternes, with tiers of toasted coconut, ginger cream, wheat biscuit and warm brioche rising up out of the core of incredibly lush mango, papaya and orange chiffon flavors. The long finish lets bergamot, persimmon and spice notes fill in, with a flash of green tea echoing through the finish to lend a racy counterpoint to the overall heft. Best from 2018 through 2040. Inner quote mark (3/2013)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Chateau de Fargues has a very pure nose of clear honey, lemon curd and passion fruit all with fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus-driven entry with touches of lime, passion fruit and grapefruit. It has great focus and “drive,” a crescendo of flavours that embrace quince, Seville orange, tangerine and spice. There is wonderful persistency towards the powerful finish. This is another great de Fargues to follow the monumental 2009. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, pale yellow-gold. Aromas of lemon, yellow peach, passion fruit and flowers are by rosewater and a lovely hint of spicy botrytis. Fresh and sweet in the mouth, with excellent balance to its smooth, rich tropical fruit, citrus and honeyed flavors. This seductive and very sweet wine struck me as a rather atypical Fargues in its restrained delivery of aromas and flavors; while it's not as flamboyant or explosively decadent as de Fargues usually is, it boasts sneaky concentration. High but well-integrated acidity keeps it very light on its feet. (IA) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

89-91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very aromatic, sweet wine, the palate suffused with acidity as well as dried apricots, fresh in character, the spicy element adding to the structure of the wine. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Quite pale gold. Dense, rich, twangy nose. Some real density and wonderful life. Tastes as though real selection has gone into this wine, although the sugar level is not that intense. And the overall impression is one of acidity plus only medium body and sweetness. I like the light marmalade hints though. RS 132 g/l, TA 4 g/l. 17/20 points Inner quote mark (4/2011)
