About

In the 1920s, Bertrand de Lur Saluces, uncle of Alexandre, current owner of Château de Fargues, decided to abandon the production of red vines to devote himself exclusively to the production of a great Sauternes wine. He undertook the slow and costly work of replanting the entire plot of land in Fargues with the grape varieties of the appellation.

Today, the same desire for quality and rigour and the same ethics are still being perpetuated.

The wine of Fargues embodies the entrepreneurial spirit and sense of risk and creativity of Lur Saluces.

Château de Fargues produces one of the great wines of Sauternes. The magic of this name lies in the action of theBotrytis cinerea , a microscopic fungus better known as « noble rot » .

When it appears in autumn, the juice in the grape is transformed, it loses its volume to acquire flavors of candied fruits and aromas of flowers.

The vineyard is planted with two grape varieties: Semillon (80% of the surface) which brings fatness, roundness and ample structure to the wine and Sauvignon Blanc (20% of the surface) cultivated for its aromatic side and its great freshness.

In Fargues, quantity is not the goal. It is indeed the quality, vineyard of Fargues  seeks to capture and bottle the aromatic explosion all that makes its wine. - Winery Website


Tasting Notes

Pale to medium gold in color, the 2009 de Fargues drifts effortlessly out of the glass with gorgeous honeysuckle, candied ginger, tropical fruit preserves and musk perfume scents followed by nuances of beeswax, chamomile tea and quince paste. Full-bodied, seductively rich and super sweet, the hedonistic layers are beautifully offset by wonderful freshness, finishing long and very layered. It possesses mature notions and yet still has bags of vibrant fruit, so loads of time ahead for this stunner.
