AN EXCEPTIONAL WINE
Château de Fargues produces a Sauternes wine. The magic of this appellation lies in the action of Botrytis cinerea, a microscopic fungus better known as “noble rot”.
When it appears in autumn, the grape is transformed by losing its volume to acquire flavors of candied fruit and floral aromas.
The vineyard is planted with two grape varieties: Semillon (80%) which brings fatness, roundness and ample structure to the wine and Sauvignon Blanc (20%) grown for its aromatic side and its great freshness.
At Fargues, quantity is not the objective. It is the quality, the aromatic explosion of this wine that Château de Fargues seeks to capture and bottle.
The know-how of the “Lur Saluces”, their age-old experience, their absolute demand for quality, make Château de Fargues an exceptional wine.
This unconditional search for excellence finds its illustration in the family motto: “Noch” – “Encore” which means “always further in the search for quality, elegance, refinement, without compromise”, such is the philosophy at Château de Fargues.
All efforts are aimed at the single label, the single wine, which has made the reputation of the estate.
The estate does not want to present any imperfect vintage which implies not signing the wine as in 1972, 1974, 1992 and 2012.
