Ch de Fargues
Chateau de Fargues is located in Fargues commune in the southern outskirts of Sauternes & Barsac districts. Chateau de Fargues produces a superlative Sauternes that was not classified in 1855 for the simple reason that the property didn’t make any wine at the time. After more than 500 years, the owner is still the Lur-Saluces family, which also owned Yquem for more than two hundred years. Not surprisingly, the two wines are quite close in style, if only for the reason that both wines receive identical care and attention to detail in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Today, Comte Alexandre de Lur-Saluces runs 15 hectares of vines, planted with Semillon (80%) and Sauvignon (20%). Chateau de Fargues produces stunning sweet wines and is a fine proof of, that there also is a world outside the classified growths in Bordeaux.
