Robert Parker : 96/100
Neal Martin : 95-97/100 (« The nose is rather taciturn at first, unfurling with tantalizing slowness: clear honey, pear, orange-blossom and apricot. Wonderful definition. The palate is not as powerful as others, but there is a tangible sense of minerality underlying the honeyed fruit, very focused and endowed with breathtaking definition and tension towards the vibrant finish. »)
Wine Spectator : 97/100
Wine Enthusiast : 96/100
Jancis Robinson : 18,5/20
Bettane & Desseauve : 18/20
Gault & Millau : 18,5/20
Jean-Marc Quarin : 94/100
Jeannie Cho Lee : 95/100 ("Flowers, apricot, honey. A wonderful Sauternes filled with intense fruit - it is wrapped up in firm acidity and fresh, vibrant, intense marmalade flavours which are lifted and fairly long. This wine has great balance and power. Definitely a wine to keep in your cellar." )
Lur Saluces’ Family cradle :
Fargues is the historic seat of the Lur Saluces family in the Gironde. This family, one of the oldest in the region, with roots going back to the Crusades, settled in Fargues over five centuries ago, in 1472.
Dynamic and enterprising, the Lur Saluces family have had a strong influence in Sauternes and the Bordeaux region since the late 17th century.
They possessed a veritable winegrowing empire in the 19th century, owning such famous estates as Château d’Yquem, Château Filhot, Château Coutet, Château de Fargues, Château de Malle …
Château de Fargues 2009 : "A perfect year for growing grapes and a textbook harvest. Outstanding botrytis on grapes showing perfect ripeness."
François Amirault, Operations Manager at Château de Fargues
Textbook conditions for the spread of noble rot! The harvest started on Monday, the 28th of September.
Pickers wearing tee-shirts were out in the vineyards from the 2nd to the 6th of October as temperatures reached 30°C.
The harvest went relatively quickly, concentrating grapes with varying degrees of botrytisation, from plein pourri (grape bunches completely attacked by botrytis) to pourri roti (all grapes within the bunch fully botrytised)
Noble rot was given new impetus by stormy weather from the 7th to the 12th of October.
The 3rd pass began on Thursday the 15th. The very last grapes were picked on the evening of October 19th, only 3 weeks after the vintage had started.
BEWARE, the bottles will be sent without their wooden case due to transporter' restrictions.
