Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne Sautrnes is a beautiful intense gold, A delicate floral and tart nose and has great fullness in the mouth with notes of white fruits (peach, pear) and candied apricots. Beautiful ensemble, nervous and racy, a fine promise of the vintage.

After a particularly rainy winter, the budburst took place evenly at the beginning of April. The cool, wet spring, which lasted until the end of June, caused a significant delay in flowering, which took place in a chaotic manner. The favourable weather conditions in July (heat and lack of rain) and to a lesser extent in August gave us renewed confidence. After a cool and damp start to the month, a sudden rise in temperatures from 20 September onwards caused a generalised invasion of botrytis, which enabled us to start harvesting from 26 September onwards. The first selections took place in optimal conditions, until the heavy rainfall of October 6th and 7th, which penalized the end of the harvest, which was completed on October 18th.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

“Nil sine Fide”, the Château motto recalls the noble past of Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne.
Indeed, the property belonged to the royal estates until 1711. In the 19th century, Mr Amédée Larrieu, who was the owner of Chateau Haut Brion in Pessac, purchased Bastor-Lamontagne.
Since 2018 the Helfrich family, the new owners, have been writing a new page in the history of this great wine.
The Château is located in Preignac, in one of the five communes of the Sauternes Appellation and extends over 56 hectares in one single plot.
The vineyard has been certified Organic since the 2016 vintage.
