Producer Profile Château de Fargues
Built in 1306, Chateau de Fargues is located atop a gravelly hilltop overlooking the Garonne valley. The estate’s fifteen-hectare vineyard has been gradually and patiently replanted since 1928 with the sole aim of making outstanding Sauternes. Benefiting from a unique microclimate, the vines are on average 35 years of age and consist of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Since 1472, the estate has been managed by the Lur Saluces family, one of the oldest and most influential in the Bordeaux region. Today, Alexandre de Lur Saluces and his son Philippe perpetuate the family tradition of excellence.
