Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château de Fargues 2011 has a slightly disjointed nose at first, although with aeration it appears to coalesce with scents of honey, almond shavings, an exotic hint of marzipan and just a touch of mandarin. The palate is well balanced with a keen line of acidity, well balanced and poised with a noticeable spicy finish that just tapers in slightly, yet there is genuine persistence and breeding here. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015

The 2011 de Fargues has a delicate, perhaps slightly more malic bouquet than I was expecting. At present, it is a little more disjointed than its peers although I am sure it will become more cohesive throughout its maturation. The palate shows its true potential: medium-bodied with great tension on the spice-tinged entry. It is cohesive and mellifluous, although at present it does not have the depth or weight of a top flight de Fargues. However, it is precise and beautifully defined on the finish. Drink 2015-2030+. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

Still quite raw, with loads of apricot, ginger, green plum, date and papaya flavors that are not yet melded together. Shows ample toasted almond and honey notes on the finish, with terrific depth and power. Very long. There's loads here, but this has a long way to go. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

RS 120-140 g/l, TA 4.25 g/l. Mid to deep gold. Not terribly expressive at first and a touch oily on the nose. Ripe, ripe citrus verging on pineapple but freshness of pears and lemon marmalade too. Generous in the middle and a juicy fresh finish. Excellent concentration but an arrow of freshness too. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Great density and unctuous texture that is classic Fargues. Generous, full-bodied, with layers of flavours ranging from dried apricots to sweet honeysuckle and marmalade. Very long, layered and beautifully made. Drink 2025-2047. Decanter.com

Delicious ripe apricots with a good balance on the nose. Light, clean stone fruit character on the palate. Fresh pineapple, candied lemon peel and pears linger on the finish. FINE+RARE
