Winemaker's Notes:

Intense white flowers and mineral tones on the nose. This white will equally enchant you with clean crisp citrus flavors and subtle notes of vanilla and lime on the finish. Tropical fruit flavors are balanced by a lovely steely acidity. A refreshing palate, ideal with fish, poultry, mixed salads or an array of white meats. 50% Roussanne, 25% Vermentino, 25% Bourboulenc.
My Notes:

About Chateau La Bastide:

Nestled in a green setting surrounded by maritime essences, this impressive chateau which had already been mentioned in topographical layouts of 1770 and refurbished several times, offers a unique character. The owners, Anne-Marie and Guilhem Durand, bought the property in 1989. They have particularly attached importance to the development of quality wines and the improvement of the vineyards by uprooting ordinary ones and replacing them with prestigious varieties.

Now, today, this policy proves to be fruitful: Chateau la Bastide is ranked among the best in numerous international tastings in the United States, Canada, England, Benelux, Germany and other countries where 96% of the production is exported.
