The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Bastor-Lamontagne has a pure, honeyed, acacia-tinged bouquet that soars from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a sensual, honeyed texture, well-judged acidity and a smooth, quite concentrated finish. This is one of the best wines that I have tasted from the estate in recent years. Chapeau! Barrel Sample: 91-93 points"

The Story

Today the château is known as a source of excellent value. Its Sauternes are carefully fermented in a combination of steel tank and barrel, before being matured for 15 months in oak (25% new). The result is a sweet wine of the highest calibre - opulent, sweet, complex yet perfectly balanced. Savour with blue cheese or a creamy fruit tart.
