The aromatic richness and indulgence of a Sauternes wine

The estate

Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne is an estate located at the heart of the Sauternes appellation, with origins dating back to the 18th century.

The vineyard

The Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne vineyard covers 41 hectares in one piece. The estate has been certified Organic Farming since the 2016 harvest and High Environmental Value Level 3 since 2020. Aged by 33 years on average, the vines are planted on a terroir made of sand, gravel, clay and limestone.

The vintage

A mild and rainy winter preceded a spring marked by heavy rainfall, as well as frost in March. Temperatures above seasonal averages in April and May, combined with heavy rain, brought about significant mildew pressure. Although conditions were particularly hot during summer, nights remained cool, inciting berry ripening.

The winemaking and aging

Manual harvests from 14 September to 21 October. 4 successive sorts. Must conservation for some hours in stalls at 4°. Gravity-fed vatting of the clear juice to begin alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation is completed in new barrels or barrels of one previous wine in a temperature-controlled cellar. Aging lasts for 10 to 12 months in barrels (70% new and 30% second-fill barrels).

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne is made of a blend of Semillon (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%).

Tasting

Nose

The beautifully fresh, airy nose reveals delicate fragrances of saffron.

Palate

Open and balanced, the palate seduces with its fullness, aromatic richness and persistence up to a finish marked by a beautiful tension and delicate aromas of orange.
