Chateau de Fargues 2005, 750mL (WA94, WS95-100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chateau de Fargues

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: France--Bordeaux--Dessert
Appellation: Sauternes/Barsac

WA94, WS95-100
Rated 94 points by the Wine Advocate: `The 2005 de Fargues has just a little more residual sugar than succeeding vintages at 142-grams- per-liter and an alcohol of 13.65%. Picked over five tries from September 27 until exactly one month later, it has a slightly more resinous bouquet than the mighty 2007 with melted candle wax, Seville orange marmalade, a touch of almond and peach skin. The definition is (as usual) very impressive. The palate is very well-balanced with marmalade and orange peel on the entry. There is good weight and presence here, although it is more contained and focused than the 2007. The oak is just a little more pronounced and it would benefit from another five or six years in bottle before broaching. Tasted April 2013.` -- Neal Martin in Issue #207 of the Wine Advocate
