About Chateau de Fargues
The home property of the Lur-Saluces family, formerly owners of Château d'Yquem, Fargues produces extraordinarily unctuous, honeyed wines from tiny vine yields.
92-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2012
(6.5 g/l total acidity; 120 g/l residual sugar): Bright golden yellow. Exotic, full-blown aromas of apricot, pineapple syrup, honey, marzipan and crepe suzette. Thick, fat and honeyed, but with excellent lift to its opulent flavors of apricot, yellow peach and honeycomb complicated by coconut, caramel and vanilla nuances. This very dense wine features penetrating acidity that provides sharp definition and lift on the very long finish. Lately, Alexandre de Lur Saluces has been making opulent wines at de Fargues that remind me of the Yquem vintages he made in years past.
