Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

98 WS / 95 VM / 95 DE / 17.5 JR

This starts off with an enveloping note of toasted coconut, giving way slowly to creamed peach, mango and papaya flavors. Long bitter orange and almond threads provide needed tension while the lush waves of fruit cascade through the finish, picking up a mouthwatering mirabelle plum accent along the way. A monster of a wine. Best from 2025 through 2055. From France. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2014 de Fargues has a well-defined bouquet with enticing scents of yellow flowers, dried honey and light quince aromas. The palate is well balanced, very pure with a fine bead of acidity. It is not a concentrated Sauternes but you have to adore the lightly spiced persistent and mellifluous finish. Classy. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Intense pineapple and honeycomb on the nose with loads of marmaladey botrytis. Rich but suave in the typical Lur Saluces style, with caramel apple and grilled mango flavours finishing long and thick. Not overly sweet thanks to searing acidity. Drinking Window 2018 - 2040. - Ian d'Agata, Decanter

Heady nose and relatively low acid for 2014 but lots of botrytis and sweetness. Pungent and traditional. Impressively persistent. - Jancis Robinson
