The Bastor-Lamontagne Estate belonged in 1711 to the King of France, the succession in Guyenne to the king of England. On 16th July 1711 it was ceded to Vincent de Ia Montaigne, a counsellor at the Bordeaux parliament. On the map drawn up by Belleyme at the end of the 18th century, "BASTORE" represented at that time a large estate, which had already begun wine-growing, even if in general much of the estate’s activity was based on mixed farming. The real wine-growing era began in the 19th century when the LARRIEU family, and in particular Amédée Larrieu, who was already the owner of Chateau Haut Brion in PESSAC, took over the estate.

Lovely aromatics on the nose here, much more lifted and perfumed than the 2003, showing soft, white fruits and a fresh minerality. Light, bright and vivacious on the palate, and perhaps there is not the depth and texture that you might hope for. A nice, clean style, with decent acidity, but it lacks impact. It needs time to show its best.
