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.

 

The estate takes its name from Chevalier de la Montaigne, a councillor of the Bordeaux Parliament who became the owner in 1711. It was named “Bastore” on Belleyme’s famous late 18th century map, and was already quite large. The château took on greater importance in the 19th century thanks to Amédée Larrieu, who also owned

Château Haut-Brion in Pessac.

Château Bastor-Lamontagne has always given priority to fruit expression and balance. Often considered a “modern Sauternes”, it is elegant, harmonious, and enjoyable at any time of the day. Although it can age very well, Bastor-Lamontagne is also delicious young thanks to its vivaciousness and finesse.

A new chapter in the château’s history was begun in 2014 when the property was acquired by the Moulin and Cathiard families, who have brought with them considerable enthusiasm and experience.

Written Notes

The 2017 Bastor-Lamontagne features pronounced notes of ripe pineapple, spice cake and lemon marmalade with hints of acacia honey, tangerine peel and wet wool. The palate has fantastic intensity and tension with loads of lift on the tangy finish.
