Description

96-98    Wine Advocate
“The 2015 Chateau de Fargues delivers 153 grams per liter of residual sugar at 13.8% alcohol. It has a complex bouquet with honey, marmalade and quince aromas that are beautifully defined, but will clearly take a few years to reach their full potential. The palate is very sensual on the entry, honeyed and lavish at the beginning, but retaining wonderful precision and persistence on the lightly spiced finish. This is a seriously good de Fargues that should age effortlessly over the next 30-40 years. As usual, this is one for the serious Sauternes-lovers who know that good things come to those that wait.”

97    Wine Spectator
Sensational, with youthfully raw waves of toasted coconut, dried fig, glazed pear and singed almond that are still finding their groove, backed by mango, heather honey and piecrust notes. Incredibly rich, yet detailed in feel, this will need a bit of time to settle in fully, after which this should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2025 through 2050.

96    Vinous
“The 2015 de Fargues feels a little reduced on the nose at the moment, although it seems clean and pure underneath that SO2, with honeycomb and crème brûlée notes emerging with time. The palate is fresh and well balanced with quite a high-toned entry, lively orange zest and marmalade notes with veins of quince jam toward the finish. This Sauternes improves in the glass and has great potential.”
