The Sauternes region enjoys a climate which is particularly conoucive to the development of a microscopic fungus: botrytis cynerea, commonly known as “noble rot”.
Located 40 km south of Bordeaux, in Preignac, on one of the terraces of the Garonne, the vines of Chiìteau Bastor-Lamontange cover a surface area of 56 hectares (138 acres) on magnificent siliceous and gravel soils and are wholly dedicated to the production of sweet white wine.
The tiny Sauternes area owes much to the Ciron river, whose cold waters flow into the Garonne and contribute to the formation of the precious autumn mists.
