Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Bastor-Lamontagne 2011 is a little underwhelming after its positive showing in barrel back in 2012. It has a relatively lean bouquet, more resinous than the Cyprès de Climens with notes of dried honey, pinecones and dried candle wax, undergrowth scents emerging with continued aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry with well-judged acidity. It does not possess the complexity or the ambition of its peers. Instead it is balanced with a linear, quite reserved finish. I noticed that it lost vigor and presence in the glass over a 20-minute duration. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015

The Bastor-Lamontagne offers a more exotic bouquet that its peers, with subtle tropical fruit aromas mingling with kiwi fruit and even a hint of toffee apple. It is well-defined but it needs to develop more intensity during maturation. The palate has a spicy entry with mint-tinged, honeyed fruit that leads to a precise, mineral-rich, focused finish that offers a touch of shaved ginger on the aftertaste. This is an intriguing Sauternes that should age with style and may offer more after bottling. Drink 2014-2028. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

Shows plenty of dried pineapple and honey character with apple pie too. Full body, medium sweet and a fresh finish. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

A bright, floral style, offering friendly peach, apricot and tangerine notes, with a floral-tinged finish. This open-knit version should be ready to go when bottled. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

RS 115 g/l, TA 4.0 g/l. A touch dusty at first, then attractive minerally grapefruit zestiness. Very viscous and dense with just enough freshness, though I wouldn't mind a touch more. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Fresh lively style typical of this property. Tasted twice, one bottle showed very well, while another was dumb. This year there is more richness in the mid palate than usual. Elegant and focused. Drink 2018-2030. Decanter.com

Perfumed nose of apricots, white peach and white flowers. Similar to de Fargues - light, clean with a zingy minerality. FINE+RARE
