Château Bastor-Lamontagne 2015



Unlike some other 2015s, this Sauternes shows absolutely no bitterness; it’s rich round and sweet, with hints of marmalade botrytis. More dense and pure than some recent vintages. About 90% Semillon with 10% Sauvignons Blanc and Gris, but it doesn’t have the terroir to give the richness of other properties. Still, a delicious wine, from grapes picked over five tries, but mainly made from the fruit of the second and third passes.
