Sauternes, Château de Fargues, Bordeaux, France, 1997
£35 per 100ml glass. Current wine list price (Half bottle) - £165
One of Sauternes’s most iconic winery, Château de Fargues has been in the Lur-Saluces family since 1472 and is part of an amazing collection of estates including Château Coutet, Château Filhot and, until 2004, Château d’Yquem.
The wine is a blend of 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc and spend a long time in oak casks and bottle before to be sold.
1997 is considered as one of the top 5 vintages at the estate. It has a shiny straw yellow colour and shows intense aromas of confit orange, roasted peach and barley sugar.
The palate is rich but amazingly balanced and develops delicious flavours of caramelised pineapple, sweet almonds and a light note of saffron on the finish.
This legendary wine is exceptional by itself but would also pair fantastically well with our white chocolate and ginger crème brulée
