The Ecuyer 2016, an organic and gourmet wine!
"We put as much heart and desire into preparing this second wine as its elder, the Bastor. L'Ecuyer is a 100% Semillon wine which gives it rich and very pleasant aromas".
The relatively mild and very wet start to the year allowed us to have an early budburst; the spring and early summer were also very wet, putting our stress level at its maximum regarding the smooth running of this 2016 vintage. But the end of the summer, like the Indian summer that followed, was very dry and very hot, and finally allowed the vines to reach the water stress necessary for the good aromatic maturity of the grapes. waiting and we only started harvesting late. The noble rot then developed easily and regularly allowing a smooth harvest and the picking of a young and fresh botrytis.
Deep straw yellow colour
Complex, open, expressive nose. Notes of citrus zest, spicy (ginger, clove), fresh clementine. Slightly brioche.
Very ample attack on the palate with a nice substance and a nice fatness. Well-balanced with a very round wine. Greedy aromatic notes (brioche, yellow fruits). Fresh and spicy finish (white pepper) with a long finish.
Comment le servir ?
Blue-veined cheeses (e.g. Roquefort)
Salmon tartar with citrus fruits

Often described as "modern Sauternes", Château Bastor-Lamontagne favours freshness and harmony. Less concentrated than some of its peers, it is a "relaxed" Sauternes as an aperitif and at the beginning of a meal, which retains all its capacity for ageing thanks to its beautiful freshness.
