L’avis de notre expert
The So, a modern Sauternes!
"The So is an easy-drinking Sauternes that wants to break the classic codes of sweet wines. To try it is to adopt it! "
The beginning of the year was relatively mild and very wet, allowing us to have an early budburst, however we suffered two consecutive frosts in April reducing the harvest by 60%. The months of May to August were a relatively dry period allowing us to have some respite. We had to wait for botrytis to set in following the rainy spells in September. The harvest began at the end of September and finished in mid-October.

A lively and creamy mouth. Exotic fruits (mango, pineapple). Beautiful liveliness and good length on the finish with a nice tension.

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.
