Château Bastor-Lamontange 2007

Château Bastor-Lamontange 2007
France, $25 +692715
Sauternes has been on the ropes lately as tastes move away from sweeter dessert-style wines, which means what was once rarified is now accessible. Take this half bottle by Bastor-Lamontagne, an excellent smaller label. It’s full of blood orange, lychee and apricot flavours but not cloyingly so. Serving it with the last course shows that the meal is an occasion and drizzling a few ounces on a roasting ham might be a nice trick as well.
