External Reviews for Les Bastions Saint Mont
Bright, green-tinged yellow. Aromas of grapefruit, peach, pear and apricot. Lively and fresh, clean finish. Serve chilled by the glass on its own or with starters, fish and shellfish.
Made from three grapes that are admittedly not very familiar to many people, (Arrufiac, Petit Courbu, and Gros Manseng) but combined make a terrific wine that will please those who favor crisp, dry wines ranging from French Chablis to New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Les Bastions Blanc is complex without being overwrought with fruit. The grapefruit-citrus aroma is clear, as is the light floral bouquet. The grapefruit is still very evident on the tongue, with an herbal tint on the finish. Enjoy this wine with a simple salad made from red onion, mandarin oranges, mesclun, or arugula with a citrus-olive oil dressing. This wine would also work well with broiled white fish.
Grown on the Purenean foothills of South West France, this wine is a blend of Arrufiac, Petit Courbu and Mansengs. Light gold in color, there are aromas of pear and lemon, and flavors of lemon and Granny Smith apples. The wine is medium bodied, juicy with mineral notes and a crisp, long finish. Enjoy this delicious wine with salmon, asparagus risotto or souffle.
