Chateau Bastor-Lamontagne 2005

91+ points

Sauternes, Bordeaux. 14%

Young, of course, with separate disjointed flavours. Oak a bit jarring, but the ripe dry 2005 vintage makes this wine drinkable. The acid is soft but not lacking and there is some custard apple and lanolin flavours which make the wine enjoyable now.

But best not to drink it now. Leave until 2013 at least if you can.
