Chateau DeFargues, Alexandre de Lur Saluces
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
From the brilliance of its dress to the way it lives in your glass when you shake it, then on the palate, everything in a Château de Fargues imposes itself on the senses and arouses curiosity. When you bring it to your lips, the sweetness of the spring flowers is expressed on your taste buds, accompanied by subtle aromas of candied fruit, pineapple or figs, a few tips of quince paste or sun-drenched apricots. You perceive the roasted flavours, the vanilla, spicy, saffron, star anise and also dried fruits. Added to this are enveloping notes of acacia honey, toasted bread, balanced by citrus zest and mineral touches. The wine of Fargues will never cease to challenge and stimulate you. A bottle of Château de Fargues can be kept for a long time, several decades or even over the century.
