Other Reviews...
The 2015 Bastor-Lamontagne has a pure, honeyed, acacia-tinged bouquet that soars from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a sensual, honeyed texture, well-judged acidity and a smooth, quite concentrated finish. This is one of the best wines that I have tasted from the estate in recent years. Chapeau!

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.

Pretty Bastor with dried lemon, orange and spice character. Dried mushrooms too. Full body, medium sweet and a phenolic tension.

This wine is ripe, with rich orange-marmalade flavors that are happily cut by bright acidity. It is a beautifully generous wine, with a sharp squirt of lemon at the end.

The 2015 Bastor-Lamontagne is delicate and light on its feet. Lemon confit, chamomile, almonds and mint underpin this airy, refreshing Sauternes. I very much like the sense of understatement and precision here. Readers should expect a feminine, light to medium-bodied style.
