Château Bastor-Lamontagne 2007 Grand Vin – 88-89pts
Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $19 (375ml)
Date Tasted: January 1st, 2011
Tasting Notes: Intense apricot, peach, petrol and mineral aromas on the nose are followed by lemon and peach flavours on the fully sweet palate. Concentrated, fruity and fun, but lacking in complexity compared to the more famous Sauternes houses. Still, a good, entry-level Sauternes from the exceptional 2007 vintage (for white Bordeaux) which offers excellent value for money.
Pair with chocolate fondant cake for a sumptuous desert that will send you and your guests to frenzied sugar heaven. Drink 2011-2016.
