Château de Fargues 2010 : A year ending in 10 is a wonderful successor to another ending in 9!
The first pass took place fairly late on the 27th and 28th of September, but was altogether magnificent. The grapes were concentrated and fresh, with complex aromas. October started off with the first of 4 rainy periods that month, followed by bright sunshine and temperatures 3-4°C above average: perfect conditions for the spread of noble rot.
The same scenario repeated itself three times, with sunshine, then cold weather and northerly wind that dried the grapes. The passes followed one another from the 14th to the 19th October, and the bulk of the harvest took place from the 17th to the 23rd.The 5th and last pass took place on the 4th and 5th of November after a long (22 day) rainy spell.
The 2010 crop was large, and finished ripening fairly late during dry, very sunny weather. The growing season took advantage of a month of October that was ideal to give free rein to noble rot. 2010 has all the hallmarks of a great vintage.
