$1,055.75 / case(24)



Profile: chateau de fargues 2002 : pure and elegant with a velvety texture. A vintage in two parts a little like 1998. Francois amirault operations manager at chateau de fargues. Harvest: the first pass took place from the 16th to the 20th of september. The second involved picking berry by berry while waiting for the late-maturing fruit to ripen. Rain arrived on 9th october and lasted 10 days. Rot attacked the latest-ripening grapes and a third pass took place from the 19th to the 20th. The last pass at the end of the month came to an end on 1st november under radiant sunshine. Grapes picked in september displayed astonishing freshness. They were also pure elegant and very aromatic. Those harvested during the last ten days of october contributed richness and complexity. The wine is very similar in style to 1998. Finding the right blend called for patience but the result is particularly tasty. Scores and tasting comments 92-94 « evoquant d’yquem par son ampleur le 2002 du chateau de fargues presente une robe jaune d’or moyennement fonce etonnamment evoluee. Genereusement marque de fabuleuses senteurs de botrytis de creme brûlee et de pain grille ainsi que de cremeux aro;mes d’orange d’ananas et de coing il est tout a la fois riche puissant et corse. Du fait de son caractere epanoui il est difficile de jauger son aptitude au vieillissement mais je subodore qu’il sera a son apogee entre 2007 et 2020. (1/05). » robert parker – le guide des vins de bordeaux – août 2005 – 93 « tasted blind at farr’s sauternes 2002 horizontal. Deep straw with green tints. The nose displays good intensity: taut and minerally well defined developing with aeration aromas of creme-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. » neal martin – erobertparker. Com – 01/11/2009 « nez de fleurs sechees tres raffine notes de pin de fruits secs grilles ro;ti pluto;t spectaculaire. Bouche elegante tres equilibree grande force epicee belle longueur soutenue par une pointe d’amertume tres excitante. Moins riche que les millesimes precedents mais toute la subtilite du cru s’exprime associant mineralite et fraicheur. » la revue des vins de france – 01/09/2006 – chateau de fargues *92-94/100 robert parker – the wine advocate
