91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2011

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.

Grapes can be affected by two types of rot: grey rot and noble rot, also known as Botrytis. While the former is a destructive force, diminishing yields and making wines taste...
