Chateau de Fargues 2014: a powerful, dense and tense Sauternes

The Chateau de Fargues is a white wine from the Sauternes appellation. The vineyard is planted with Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The aging is done in barrels (40% new oak) for 30 months.

At Chateau de Fargues, the 2014 vintage had complicated weather conditions, which have always been one of the worst fears of the estate. Fortunately, the warm autumn saved the vintage. Although production was low with only 11,000 bottles, it is of very high quality. When Chateau de Fargues releases a vintage, it is a guarantee of quality because mediocre years are not bottled. The harvest took place from September 15 to October 30 with 4 selections staggered throughout the harvest.

At tasting, the Chateau de Fargues 2014 develops fruity scents (pressed apple, apple-pear compote, poached pear, greengage plum), which blend beautifully with fresh and subtle floral (lily-of-the-valley) and marine notes. We can also notice subtle touches of resin, which is a feature of young wines from Chateau de Fargues. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, dense and fresh. The palate first reveals citrus and grapefruit zest flavors before unveiling its tastiness, freshness and lovely acidity along with rhubarb, pineapple, lemon confit and sweet, juicy peach. Finally, we can feel the charms of sweet and delicate white flowers (jasmine) and fresh apricot. This wine is wonderfully balanced between sweetness and acidity. The Chateau Fargues 2014 is powerful, dense and incredibly tense wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château de Fargues 2014 has an opulent, rounded and powerful bouquet that delivers a payload of botrytized fruit that is precise, upholding the de Fargues style, hints of mandarin and Clementine developing in the glass. The palate has a huge weight in the mouth: a fine line of acidity with layers of clear honey, marmalade and a dash of ginger on the finish. This represents an immensely pure Château de Fargues with enormous length and intensity. Superb.
