Château Bastor Lamontagne 2001
The expressive and elegant nose combines pear and jam aromas. A bottle to be opened in two years time and for many years to go for a gourmet match with a fish in cream sauce. Very pleasant by its aromatic expression (acacia, ripe apricot, orange peel). A great year in Sauternes!

L’avis de notre expert
Very nice year
"2001, a year of late ripening and a cool September followed by an Indian summer that will give the 2001 vintage great purity".
The climatic conditions of the 2001 vintage were marked first of all by a very rainy winter. The mild winter then led to an early budburst of the vine. April was rainy with average temperatures and it was not until May and June that hot weather returned without rainfall. After a well-watered July and a warm August, the weather conditions in the month of September were very favourable to the slow and progressive ripening of the grapes, which resulted in concentrated musts of great aromatic complexity. The roasted character of the noble rot explodes that year. The success is there with fat wines, at the same time powerful and fine, whose density is the best guarantee for the future.

A vintage at the top of the rankings!
This wine has seduced Sauternes lovers with its great freshness balanced by the fruit, which is very present and delicious. Promised to be kept for many years to develop its aromas, this is a vintage to have at home.
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.
