Chateau de Fargues Sauternes Lur Saluces 2014
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
|Brand||Chateau de Fargues|
This starts off with an enveloping note of toasted coconut, giving way slowly to creamed peach, mango and papaya flavors. Long bitter orange and almond threads provide needed tension while the lush waves of fruit cascade through the finish, picking up a mouthwatering mirabelle plum accent along the way. A monster of a wine. Best from 2025 through 2055. 833 cases made.
The ChÃ¢teau de Fargues 2014 has an opulent, rounded and powerful bouquet that delivers a payload of botrytized fruit that is precise, upholding the de Fargues style, hints of mandarin and Clementine developing in the glass. The palate has a huge weight in the mouth: a fine line of acidity with layers of clear honey, marmalade and a dash of ginger on the finish. This represents an immensely pure ChÃ¢teau de Fargues with enormous length and intensity. Superb. Drink Date: 2019-2045.
