World Wine – Neal Martin - The nose is rather taciturn at first, unfurling with tantalising 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 – This is so creamy, almost milky in feel, with toasted coconut and cashew notes giving way to sweet peach, apricot and glazed pear flavors that glide along, while ginger, green tea, lychee and kumquat flavors extend through the finish. Shows terrific range and definition. Feels like it's just starting to open, and is in no rush. Drink now through 2035.
World Wine – Neal Martin - The 2004 Chateau de Fargues is a fantastic wine for the vintage and should not be overlooked. It boasts a heavenly bouquet with touches of white chocolate, dried honey, marmalade and quince that opens exuberantly with aeration. The palate is extremely well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is certainly very good weight here, similar to the Doisy-Vedrines, albeit packed with greater sophistication and breeding. It builds gloriously in the mouth toward its tender praline and honey finish, which lingers long in the mouth. This is a superb and perhaps overlooked Chateau de Fargues. (Apr14)
World Wine – Vinous - Deep straw with green tints. The nose displays good intensity: taut and minerally, well defined,developing with aeration aromas of crème-brulee, honey and a touch of biscuit. The palate is very attractive: well balanced, lithe and feminine, very good poise, attacking but not aggressive. The acidity slices through the honeyed fruit with precision and style. A touch of viscosity towards the finish, but not as unctuous as other ’02 Sauternes. This is a finely tuned Sauternes that excels in this vintage. Excellent
