Château de Fargues Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1983

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Robert Parker (Bordeaux Book, Edition #B1): While no match for the extraordinary wine produced at d'Yquem in this vintage, the 1983 de Fargues (aged 3 years in 100% new oak casks) is, nevertheless, a sensational example of a Sauternes with an amazing resemblance to d'Yquem. A big, buttery, caramel, smoky, creme brulee and honeyed pineapple nose is enthralling. In the mouth, the wine is powerful, very sweet, rich, extremely full, and framed beautifully by toasty new oak. Quite full bodied and intense, this largescaled wine should have a great future. Anticipated maturity: Now-2008. (Jan 1998)
