Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grapes: 80% Sémillon, 17% Sauvignon, 3% Muscadelle.
Tasting notes:Aged on its fermentation lees, the wine shows subtle aromas of citrus fruit, such as grapefruit and crystallised lemon, with hints of vanilla coming from the ageing in oak barrels. The texture is tight on the palate, reflecting the density of the botrytis and the concentration obtained. Fat and full without being heavy, thanks to a good acidity great freshness. Powerful and spicy in the finish, showing great potential for a long ageing in bottle.
About the winery: Located in Preignac, one of the five communes in the Sauternes appellation, Château Bastor-Lamontagne has 52 hectares of vineyards in a single block on siliceous-gravel soil that produces rich, vigorous wines.
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 ownedChâteau 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.
