2020 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 95

Lemon chiffon, flowers, pineapple. white peach, mango and vanilla with honey-covered nuts create the perfume. Opulent, lush, sweet and fresh, due to its shot of racy acidity that runs down its spine, the buttery finish is packed with grilled pineapple, orange rind and apricots slathered with honey. 94-96 Pts

2016 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

Opulent, lush, sweet, honeyed fruit coasts your mouth. The acidity gives all that, sweet, ripe and over ripe fruits just about enough lift to make it interesting and delicious. 94 Points

2015 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

Racy, with its acidity, this is just great. Concentrated with overripe pineapple. apricot, and assorted luscious tropical fruits, everything is coated in nuts, vanilla and honey. Concentrated and light on its feet, this is already delicious! 94 Points

Racy, with its acidity, the sweet, luscious tropical fruits, candied citrus and apricots coated in honey are made even better with the notes of honeysuckle and vanilla. 93-95 Pts

2014 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

Super wine here, made in a such a nice style, with all the ripe, very ripe and overripe pineapple, apricot and orange peel you can eat, as long it's all soaked in honey, and vanilla. The racy finish, with its mesh of sweetness, cut with acidity is just what you need. 94 Points

2010 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

I love young Sauternes, especially when they combine intensity of flavor with sweet honey, fleshy textures and bracing acidity, leaving you with these great sensations of honey topped, tropical fruit, vanilla, pineapple and apricots. 94 Points

2009 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 91

Apricots, grilled nuts, honey covered pineapple. spice and vanilla notes create the nose. Rich and concentrated with ripe, honey fruit, but it feels a little dense. More acidity would add lift and give it a fresher feeling in the mouth. 91 Points

2007 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 93

Rich, lively and gushing with sweet, honey coated tropical fruits, flowers, spice and vanilla custard, the wine is long, sweet, mouth filling and fresh. If the wine fills out as it matures, and it just might, it should easily upgrade another point or two. This is a really nice style of Sauternes. 93 Points

2006 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

Zesty, sweet, honeyed tropical fruits, apricot and candied orange are out in force. There is good depth, volume and lift. You can certainly enjoy this now, or age it another 5-7 years. 94 Points

2005 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 93

Vanilla bean, tropical fruit, orange marmalade, peach and apricots are coated with honey in the perfume. Silky, lush, rich, sweet, fresh, round and most importantly, delicious, the wine has refreshing acidity and the perfect level of tropical sweetness. 93 Points

2003 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 93

A sweet treat indeed. Not as dense as many 2003 Sauternes, but you find more than enough vanilla, custard, apricot, pineapple and white peach with the right amount of honey and freshness to put a smile on the face of any sweet wine aficionado. 93 Points

I do not know about you, but I seem to drink a lot more Sauternes around the holiday time. Fleshy, full bodied, concentrated with a low acidity profile, the wine serves up a healthy dose of honeyed apricots, overripe tropical fruit, vanilla bean, custard and floral notes. A bit more acidy would add lift, but that does not stop this from being a delicious sweet treat. 92 Points

Honeysuckle, orange, peach, pineapple, nectarine and apricots coated with a blend of honey, vanilla and spice. Rich, fresh and sweet, the medium/full bodied Sauternes ends with a lively, spicy, orange and honey sensation. 93 Points

1997 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

This beauty is drinking in its sweet spot. Luscious, fresh, ripe and over ripe tropical fruits, white peach, pineapple, orange and apricot all blended together with candied tangerine, honey, roasted nuts, caramel and a hint of butterscotch. The right mix of sugary, decadent fruits and acidity just hits the spot. 94 Points

1996 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 90

Looking and tasting much older than its true age, the wine has taken on more of a copper coloring. Losing some of its sweetness, you find more creme brulee, orange and caramel, than sweet, tropical, honeyed fruits. This is a wine for current consuption, as my instincts say, it's only going to get worse. 90 Points

1990 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 90

I'm happy this was my last bottle, because the ripe, tropical fruits are fading. In turn, you find a lot more orange, tangerine, vanilla, creme brulee and butterscotch. Additional time will continue to lighten the fruit and bring out more acidity. This is a wine that needs to be consumed. 90 Points

Sweet, luscious, honeyed tropical fruit and nice depth but, it could use a bit more complexity. 91 Points

1989 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 92

Fully mature, the wine exchanges concentration for purity, refinement, and freshness. Filled with yellow and orange tropical fruit, vanilla, honey, creme brulee, caramel and honeysuckle, this charmer is deceptively easy to drink. 92 Points

1988 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 94

Fully mature, this charmer has everything needed for a sweet treat. The honeyed, tropical fruit, apricots, flowers and marmalade in the nose are complicated with the addition of butter cookie aromatics and candied orange. Fresh, sweet, and lively, due to the refreshing acidity, this is at peak today. 94 Points

1986 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 92

This is fully mature, or perhaps a bit past its peak. The honeyed apricot, orange, spice and floral notes shine. On the palate the apricot and pineapple are giving way to the orange, spice and marmalade side of the style range. If you are sitting on any, there is no reason for further cellaring. 92 Points

1975 Château de Fargues  (Sauternes) 90

Copper with orange and rust in color, scents of spice, apricot, pineapple, orange oil, honey, roasted nuts and a hint of coconut are found in the perfume. Previous showings offered more sweetness and depth of flavor on the palate. If had another bottle, I'd be drinking this sooner than later as it's starting to fade. 90 Points
