"The de Fargues 1999 is described by the estate as a classic vintage that adheres to the adage “Aout fait le mout.” Two-thirds of the crop was picked in September after 8 days of rain propagated widespread noble rot. There is slightly lower residual sugar at 122-grams-per-liter. It has a more conservative, straight-laced bouquet compared to more recent vintages, revealing touches of ginger, dried honey, mandarin and a dab of alcohol. The palate is medium-bodied with a confident, viscous opening and a keen thread of acidity. Notes of mandarin, lemon peel, honeycomb and Indian spices inform the middle and finish that retains a sense of composure and linearity that suits it well. This is a very fine Sauternes for the vintage. Tasted April 2013." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Jun 27, 2013)
