In a large mixing bowl, combine the crabmeat, eggs, parsley, mustard and bread crumbs.
Mix well and let stand a few minutes to blend the flavors.
To make the tomato-orange chipotle sauce, combine the tomatoes, oranges, onion, cilantro and chipotles in another bowl and set aside.
Form the crab mixture into 1 1/2- to 2-ounce cakes.
Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat until very hot.
Add the cakes, a few at a time, and fry them until they are well browned on both sides, turning only once.
Remove them from the oil and drain them on paper towels.
To make the sauce, add the tomato mixture and wine to the pan in which the cakes were cooked.
Bring to a boil, add the butter, and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange a couple of crab cakes on a plate, pour the sauce on top, and serve immediately.
