The Chateau de Fargues has a very pure nose of clear honey, lemon curd and passion fruit all with fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus-driven entry with touches of lime, passion fruit and grapefruit. It has great focus and "drive," a crescendo of flavours that embrace quince, Seville orange, tangerine and spice. There is wonderful persistency towards the powerful finish. This is another great de Fargues to follow the monumental 2009. NEAL MARTIN

This year, we have a Fargues of outstanding, almost Climens-like slimness, purity and finesse. In spite of normal sweetness for the vintage, it has no hint of heaviness: all fine, tightly-knit, and lissom almost a German kind of feel. BILL BLATCH

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. Residual Sugar 132 g/l, Total Acidity 4 g/l, Alcohol 13.65%. JANCIS ROBINSON
