Tasting Note
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. The de Fargues ‘01 has a lovely floral bouquet with quince, lemon curd, peach and lime flower with wonderful definition and poise. The palate is very well balanced with a zest edge, notes of orange zest, light honey, peach and marmalade, long and sensual towards the finish. I have always had a feeling that the de Fargues ’01 would blossom...grab a case if Yquem is beyond your means because this is outstanding. Drink from 2014-2030.
