Château de Fargues 2017 – Sauternes

The nose is fresh, elegant, well-balanced, racy and offers a small juiciness. It reveals notes of fresh pear, crunchy nectarine and more slightly lime, fresh citrus associated with subtle touches of white fruits in syrup as well as discreet hints of flowers, a discreet hint of kumquat and an imperceptible hint of verbena and bergamot. The palate is fresh, fruity, juicy, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers a good definition, juiciness, a beautiful tension, a beautiful freshness as well as a fine unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh pear, fresh lemon and crunchy peach, verbena associated with fine touches of apple as well as subtle touches of toasted, vanilla and racy minerality/silex. There is a hint of fig on the persistence.
