Winemaker Notes

Known as the "Winemaker's Vintage" for its challenging weather, our 2006 was certainly the year where experience made all the difference!

Despite a low yield, the 2006 certainly has the potential to be among the 5-6 best vintages of the last 20 years. There is an ideal balance between freshness-vivacity and power-concentration.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The refuge of the Lur Saluces family after selling their beloved Yquem, this is an Yquem-like wine that sells for a fraction of the price fetched for the most famous wine of the region. Rich, honeyed citrus along with creme brulee, vanillin, sweet caramelized pineapple and citrus notes are followed by a wine with an unctuously thick, viscous, full-bodied mouthfeel, but with good enough acidity to balance out the wine's enormous weight, richness, and concentration. This should be a 30+ year wine when it is bottled this year. Range: 94-96
WS 95
Wine Spectator
This is really attention-getting, with a seamless toasted coconut note weaving through lush tarte tartine, creamed apricot and heather flavors. As exotic as the flavors are, they are tightly focused and framed by a mouthwatering date note, with a long, mouthwatering finish.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A firm, densely structured wine, with the sweetness turned as much into richness. The flavors are of Seville orange zest, the richness coming from honey and almonds, balanced with dry botrytis. An impressive wine that needs time for aging.

Chateau de Fargues, France
Chateau de Fargues Winery Image
An atypical estate as well as an atypical wine, Chateau de Fargues - a Lur Saluces property - bears majestic witness to the past. This historical perspective enables the chateau to cultivate a fine reputation among a small, but devoted circle of connoisseurs, and rise above the turmoil of the present or the influence of short-lived trends. Chateau de Fargues has the necessary grandeur to focus on its quest for perfection and intimacy.

The constant desire to maintain a blanace between expertise passed down from generation to generation and carefully tested modern techniques makes this golden wine a "blue note" among the great Sauternes estates.
