Critic Notes

The 2017 Bastor Lamontagne is an 80/20 split of Sémillon and Sauvignon and offers a rich, full-bodied yet incredibly pure and focused profile. Giving lots of botrytis, honey, white flowers, and caramelized fruits, it’s perfectly balanced, has good acidity, and a clean finish.

Score: 92-94/100Jeb Dunnuck

Fresh citrus aroma. Could almost be a dry wine on the nose. Bright but quite simple honeyed citrus and a fresh grapefruit aftertaste. Fresh with moderate intensity. (JH)

Score: 16.5-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: Drink 2022-2030

The 2017 Bastor-Lamontagne, where half the crop was lost, has a honeyed bouquet with hints of Turkish Delight, vanilla and freshly sliced mango. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity and moderate depth. It is not a persistent Bastor-Lamontagne but it offers pleasing freshness from start, all the way up to its Barsac-like finish.

Score: 89-91/Neal MartinDrinking Window: 2022 - 2035

Bastor-Lamontagne suffered around 50% losses this year because of the frost. The 2017 Bastor-Lamontagne opens with gorgeous scents of pineapples, mangoes and apricots with hints of beeswax and candied orange peel. The palate offers lovely freshness, very spicy in the mouth with loads of tropical fruits and a long, honeyed finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
