The 2004 Chateau de Fargues is a fantastic wine for the vintage and should not be overlooked. It boasts a heavenly bouquet with touches of white chocolate, dried honey, marmalade and quince that opens exuberantly with aeration. The palate is extremely well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is certainly very good weight here, similar to the Doisy-Vedrines, albeit packed with greater sophistication and breeding. It builds gloriously in the mouth toward its tender praline and honey finish, which lingers long in the mouth. This is a superb and perhaps overlooked Chateau de Fargues. (Apr14)

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.
