Château Bastor Lamontagne Blanc 2012
15,5 / 20 by Jancis Robinson, 16/20 Bettane & Desseauve, 90-92 / 100 by Robert Parker and 3 stars in the Decanter are some examples of the plethora of praise received by this magnificent Sauternes.
In the glass, there is a very rich nose, almost voluptuous, expressing beautiful fresh aromas of pear, pineapple notes, almonds, orange blossom and honey.
This wine, rich and deep, we offer a large amplitude in the mouth, while silk and lace. It is pure and elegant, and its power is harmoniously balanced with good acidity.
A true wonder!
