CHATEAU DE FARGUES
AN EXCEPTIONAL WINE

When it appears in autumn, the juice in the grape is transformed, it loses its volume to acquire flavors of candied fruits and aromas of flowers.
The vineyard is planted with two grape varieties: Semillon (80% of the surface) which brings fatness, roundness and ample structure to the wine and Sauvignon Blanc (20% of the surface) cultivated for its aromatic side and its great freshness.
In Fargues, quantity is not the goal. It is indeed the quality, vineyard of Fargues seeks to capture and bottle the aromatic explosion all that makes its wine.
The know-how of the Lur Saluces , their age-old experience, their absolute demand for quality, make Château de Fargues an exceptional wine.
