Château de Fargues Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

95-100 points Wine Spectator: This is very concentrated with dried pineapple, honey and caramel. Full-bodied and superdense. Like honey. Massive. From the former head and part owner of Yquem. (6/30/06)

The 2005 de Fargues has just a little more residual sugar than succeeding vintages at 142-grams- per-liter and an alcohol of 13.65%. Picked over five tries from September 27 until exactly one month later it has a slightly more resinous bouquet than the mighty 2007 with melted candle wax Seville orange marmalade a touch of almond and peach skin. The definition is (as usual) very impressive. The palate is very well-balanced with marmalade and orange peel on the entry. There is good weight and presence here although it is more contained and focused than the 2007. The oak is just a little more pronounced and it would benefit from another five or six years in bottle before broaching. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Medium yellow. Exotic, high-toned apricot, spices and flowers on the nose, complemented by coco-nutty, toasty oak. Very sweet and unctuous, with exotic, nobly rotten flavors of pineapple, apricot and coconut and an impression of elevated alcohol. Not quite as racy, fruity or structured as the 2007; conveys an impression of softer acidity, and yet this maintains a light touch. Finishes with suggestions of vanilla and marzipan.
