Points de distinctions
L’avis de notre expert
A fresh Sauternes
''A mild winter, a late and dry summer that will last until September, the botytris will have a little trouble to settle. This vintage reveals grapefruit aromas with a moderate liquor".
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.
Beautiful shiny gold
A greedy nose. We find white fruit and exotic fruit aromas (mango, pineapple).
The palate has a beautiful freshness, then a delicate roundness. There is a nice balance with aromas of citrus peel, marmalade and spices on the finish (saffron, ginger...). This wine has substance and a nice structure.
Comment le servir ?
Duck and chicken
Spicy vegetable tagine
Chocolate or fruity desserts
20% Sauvignon Blanc
A vintage qualified as gourmet
The Wine Spectator was charmed by the delicacy of our 2016 vintage in Sauternes. We are sure that it will continue to seduce the judges in future competitions!
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.
