2016 Les Remparts de Bastor-Lamontagne, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
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.
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.
This is the estate's second wine, and as such is a little lighter and fresher in style, but still with a lovely mouthfilling richness. This wine is made to be drunk within about 6 years of the vintage when the tropical fruit flavours are still fresh and lively.
