Classification 1er Cru Classé

Still in barrel, this Chateau d’Yquem look-alike exhibits powerful creme brulee characteristics along with some volatile acidity, huge, full-bodied, unctuously textured flavors, ample intensity as well as purity, and caramelized tropical fruits. This brawny heavyweight requires 5-6 years of bottle age, and should evolve for three decades. Rating: 94-96 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Sep 2005)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Château de Fargues

The imposing ruins of a fortress built in 1306 give Château de Fargues a certain mystery that suits the estate very well. Until 2004, Alexandre de Lur Saluces, owner of Château de Fargues, also managed the famous Château d'Yquem. This explains why the vitcultural and winemaking methods at Fargues are so similar to its prestigious "cousin".
