Château Partarrieu an 11ha property in the commune of Fargues lies just to the East of Château Rieussec and to the north of Ch de Fargues.
This 150-year old property was purchased in 1993 by the previous part-owner of Ch Suduiraut, Philippe Mercadier, from Jacqueline Tuyttens-Laville. Philippe’s main vineyard interests are in the Languedoc, being passionate about Sauternes wines, when this excellent little property came up for sale, he seized the opportunity to add it to his holdings.
The plantings consist of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon old vines. The character of these wines is distinguished by impressive suppleness and smoothness, yet they are endowed with the classic Barsac richness and viscocity.
The wines are ideally drunk young, to allow savouring the purity and vivacity of their fruit flavours, but they can equally undergo 5+ years of flawless ageing , although more ageing potential may unfold with time (hard to judge at this stage, as the first vintage of modern Partarrieu was only in 1999)
