97 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The de Fargues 2007 delivers 13.9% alcohol and 134 grams of residual sugar. Picking commenced on September 11, with slow botrytis formation and recommenced October 2-24, the picking ale to be conducted at a relatively leisurely pace. It has a very typical de Fargues nose that has lost its tongue at first, but it opens up to reveal a slightly spirituous bouquet with clear honey, pressed flowers, almond and a distant scent of the sea. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and outstanding delineation. It is utterly harmonious with a thrilling, edgy finish that expresses the terroir with great clarity. There is an effervescent quality that really takes the 2007 to another level, while the marmalade and white pepper finish is powerful and leaves a lasting impression. This is a fabulous 2007, one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted April 2013. (Jun 2013)"
95 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and caressing, with gorgeous toasted coconut, dried orange, ginger cream and mango flavors that all glide through the lush finish, where macadamia nut and papaya notes fill in the remaining space. Offers plenty of depth for the cellar, too. Gorgeous. Drink now through 2037. (5/31/12)"
95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2007 de Fargues is another absolutely stunning example of the vintage and will no doubt one day take is rightful place amongst the best half dozen vintages of this estate since the brilliant 1976. The beautiful, youthful and completely elegant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of fresh apricot, pineapple, crème brulée, honeycomb, toasted coconut, a lovely base of soil and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very long and racy, with a rock solid core of fruit, crisp acids, impeccable focus and balance and absolutely great length and grip on the complex and stunning finish. A great wine in the making. 2018-2060. (Jan/Feb 2010)"
94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2007 Château de Fargues has a floral bouquet with clear honey, quince and saffron scents, initially timid yet blossoming with aeration. The palate is very well balanced, quite viscous and lightly spiced with decent acidity and hints of stem ginger towards the finish. Superb. Tasted at the 2007 horizontal in Sauternes. Drink: 2022-2045. (Oct 2022)"
