The Chateau de Fargues 2010 has a fresh and vibrant, well-delineated bouquet with peaches and cream, quince and buttercup on the pretty nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is taut and linear on the entry with a silver thread of acidity lending this Sauternes race and class. There is ample freshness here and an effervescent quality that lends its life and vigor. Vivacious and appealing, this should age well for the next 20-30 years, possibly more. To repeat my comment from barrel: “This is another great de Fargues.” Chapeau! Drink 2016-2035+. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014

Unctuous and nicely formed already, with juicy apricot, green fig and honey notes. The finish is lush, but with nice cut, showing hints of toasted coconut and almond. Sneakily long. —J.M. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Quite pale gold. Dense, rich, twangy nose. Some real density and wonderful life. Tastes as though real selection has gone into this wine, although the sugar level is not that intense. And the overall impression is one of acidity plus only medium body and sweetness. I like the light marmalade hints though. RS 132 g/l, TA 4 g/l. 13.65% jancisrobinson.com

Paler colour than Bastor, delicate aromas (citrus-like), imposing, very long and rich, less evolved than many which will not surprise those who know how this growth works. Another argument to delay tastings of Sauternes babies... Drink 2015-2040 (17.5 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com

This enticing liquid pale gold to silvery citron rim holds back a dulcet aroma of melon, peach and wild honey. Well-balanced, integrated body results from painstaking work and intuition. Count Alexandre deFargues, who was with Château d’Yquem for forty years, humblyrevealed his instinctive and informed approach to combining, testing and producing this excellent composition. Honey, white peach and apricot flavours on the mid-palate lead to a long finish of pale butter and vanilla. Ivor Davies

The 2010 Fargues offer a nice concentration of sweet dried fruit flavours with firm acidity. There isn't the concentration of flavours as in the 2009 but there is sufficient depth to suggest this wine wine easily will age for a decade or more. The wine has a lovely a richness balanced by fresh acidity in the mid palate and a fairly long finish. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

Classic stone fruit and honey on the nose however it remains subtle. Really weighty mouth feel but also creamy in texture with lots of ripe fruit character ranging from grapefruit to mango and goes on for a long time.
