Chateau de Fargues

It’s been a few years now that Fargues has really stood out for its elegance and perfectly-pitched edgy acidity. If Sauternes was a more popular appellation and wine style, this…

More forward in style than the grand vin. Fresh, zesty and aromatic but with generous fruit. Citrus aroma and flavour. Drink when bottled. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Drinking Window:2017-2020 Taster:James…

The quintessence of the parcels not classified for Valandraud. Seductive aroma and flavour. Creamy palate with lift and smooth, refined texture. Tannins ripe and extremely fine. Gently persistent. Wine-Searcher stockist…

A Jonathan Maltus (Le Dôme) wine from a parcel touching Angélus. Fine, opulent texture masks a big tannic frame. Powerful and long on the finish. A strapping wine that should…

Points 93

This is a really complete wine with aromatic complexity, ripe fruit, beautifully suave texture and freshness and persistence on the finish. The tannins are abundant but fine, allowing the wine…

100% Merlot selected by Denis Durantou of L’Eglise-Clinet from a vineyard in St-Etienne-de-Lisse. Fragrant, dark fruit with notes of blackcurrant and blackberry. Generous and perfumed on the palate with a…

Formerly Haut-Villet and now in the same stable as Barde-Haut (first vintage 2013). Fresh and floral with an affirmed stamp of the limestone terroir. Lots of lift and relief but…

A lighter, more accessible copy of the grand vin, made from 35% of the harvest. Lots of Cabernet (68%) this year. Fresh and appealing with a light but ripe tannic…

More than just a second wine. 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc from a single parcel. Lovely aromatic complexity with floral, spice, dark fruit and minty notes. The palate is…

Points 93

From a parcel near Fonroque. Well defined with firm but ripe tannins wrapped in supple fruit. Lovely length with the limestone terroir showing. Ageing potential. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Cru:GC…

Points 93

100% Merlot. The nose is reserved but hiding a big depth of fruit and the palate is unctuous and spicy with caressing tannins. Rich constitution but a gentler hand than…

Points 91

Round, juicy and weighty. Loads of charm and a clear step up from earlier vintages. This will offer good value. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Cru:2L Drinking Window:2019-2025 Taster:James Lawther MW…

80% Cabernet Franc. Fresh, floral and perfumed. A long way from its original (concentrated, oaky) style. Lovely, refined, velvety texture and carefully matted tannins. Freshness and persistence on the finish.…

100% Sauvignon Blanc from young vines (second crop). Floral and white fruit bouquet and the palate is dry and fruity. A short finish but balanced. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Drinking…

100% Merlot picked on 24 September. Fragrant Burgundian nose and a gentle, caressing palate with polished tannins providing a light structure. Accessible earlier so enjoy it on the fruit. Wine-Searcher…

Points 89

Pure aromatics. Powerful tannic base but the tannins are ripe and round. Freshness from start to finish so great harmony. Limestone terroir apparent. Tight, firm finish. Restrained power. Now organically…

Rich and meaty aroma. Smooth, ripe constitution with a big depth of fruit on the palate. Tannins are firm but polished. Will represent good value. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Drinking…

Points 90

Rich and meaty, showing big extraction on a solid tannic frame. Powerful but lacks some of the panache of the 2015 vintage. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Cru:GC Drinking Window:2020-2030 Taster:James…

Points 88

Fresh, vibrant and a little more focused than usual, the grain of tannin giving line and length and a more assured structure. Will be good value. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details…

Slightly muted nose but has the quality of fruit and texture on dense mid-palate extract. Purity, precision and lift. Delicious; a bit of a sleeper. Wine-Searcher stockist search Details Drinking…

Same family as Tertre-Rôteboeuf so opulent and weighty in style. Succulent fruit with a fine quality of tannin. 100% new oak is completely integrated. Accessible early but will age. Wine-Searcher…
