2001 Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne, Sauternes


Light golden yellow. Nose had lemon and orange aromas. Sweet orange and apricot fruit, moderate acid, and a long sweet, fruity finish. A medium weight young Sauterne. I paid about $20 for a half bottle. My rating 84.

Is the 1996 still available anywhere? If so, how could I get some?

Thanks a lot! If you put the 1996 after the wine desciption, nothing comes up as to where it's available. Thanks for the info; I'm on a search and destroy mission to obtain a case! Happy drinking to all!
