Region: Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
Grape: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Château de Fargues
Owned by the Lur Saluces family, this is richly intense and serious with weight, power and gravitas. Super sweet yet with lovely acidity and drying bitterness on the finish, this is exquisitely balanced and long with apricot and marmalade fruit to the fore. A blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, it is also richly unctuous. NB, this is still a barrel sample as the de Fargues spends between 30-36 months in oak. One for the long haul.
