Château de Fargues Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Still in barrel, this Chateau d'Yquem look-alike exhibits powerful cremebrulee characteristics along with some volatile acidity, huge, full-bodied,unctuously textured flavors, ample intensity as well as purity, and caramelizedtropical fruits. This brawny heavyweight requires 5-6 years of bottle age, andshould evolve for three decades."<br/>(Robert Parker - www.erobertparker.com - 30-June 2004)<br/><br/>

The 2001 vintage was a late ripening one for the estate by an Indian summer like 1988 and 1997. The first wave of picking was between September 29 - October 4 and the final passage through the vineyard occurred on October 24. Delivering 132 grams-per-liter residual sugar and 13.88% alcohol it has a limpid golden hue. The bouquet is very perfumed with beautifully defined Seville orange marmalade Manuka honey and minerals all vying for attention. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry noticeable acidity (a total acidity of 5.3 grams) that lends this race and a citric line that runs from start to finish. There is a resinous/waxy note developing on the ginger-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a very fine de Fargues that is entering its drinking window though could it have been even better? Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
