I suspect most readers will find it hard to get excited about the 2002 vintage for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes after what appears to be a prodigious 2001. However, 2002 is a very fine year for this region, possibly superior to any of the vintages between 2000 and 1991. The wines possess plenty of botrytis, but neither the impressive definition nor supreme elegance of the 2001s. This is a sweet, full-bodied, fat, concentrated, intense effort that was showing well in September, 2003. (Sept03)

91-94/100

Robert Parker Jnr., The Wine Advocate

Château Fargues is the oldest family-owned estate in the Sauternes appellation. The emphasis on quality is implicit in everything done at Fargues creates an archetypal Sauternes wine displaying a subtle balance between sweetness and freshness, candied fruit and tangy fruit, and floral and mineral aromas.
