Critic reviews
"The 2023 Bastor-Lamontagne is more neutral in style than its peers—more timid at the moment, with delicate touches of orange pith, lemon curd and saffron. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and notes of quince and marmalade. It’s not overly complex, but I applaud the tension and elegance on the finish that makes me want another sip. Boasting slightly lower residual sugar than other Sauternes, this has an easy-drinking quality without compromising complexity."
Neal Martin, April 2024,

"The 2023 Bastor-Lamontagne is terrific. In fact, this is one of the best vintages I have tasted. Passion fruit, pineapple, tangerine peel and mint are all beautifully lifted. Bastor-Lamontagne is always on the lighter, more airy side of Sauternes. The 2023 offers plenty of that finesse, but with a bit more mid-palate creaminess than in recent years. This is very fine effort."
Antonio Galloni, April 2024,

"Intense without being heavy, delivering grilled spices, fresh fig, white peach and lime zest, with lift and juice balancd by a pummice stone texture to the structure that provides a lesson in constrast that is the mark of great Sauternes. Good stuff, rises through the palate. Certified organic."
Jane Anson, April 2024,

"Medium-sweet with a subtle spiciness. Lots of dried fruit with a floral and lemongrass undertone. Honeysuckle. Hints of lemon and dried apple. Excellent balance and finesse. 80% semillon and 20% sauvignon blanc."
