Coming in at 140-grams-per-liter residual sugar, the 2009 de Fargues was picked from September 28 over three tries until October 19, a day before heavy showers curtailed the vintages. It seems to have gone into its shell since I last tasted it. It opens gradually with subtle notes of dried honey, lanolin, just a touch of chlorophyll and stem ginger. The palate is gorgeous: super fine tannins here, wonderful minerality and tension with a sense of everything being in its right place. It is not a powerful de Fargues – in fact, this is understated for the vintage. However, it will have great complexity and is worth cellaring for a couple of decades. Tasted April 2013.
