Château de Quantin Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château de Quantin Rouge

The vines at Quantin grow on deep gravel to produce a red wine with very ripe, smoky aromas. This is very elegant on the palate with solid, well-extracted tannin and an attractive personality in all vintages.


Label of 2015 red Château de Quantin
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Brilliant, attractive, garnet-red colour with purple highlights.

Nose

Round and generous bouquet of  very ripe fruit (morello cherry, blackcurrant) and a hint of vanilla.

Mouth

Smooth and generous on the palate. Has a beautifully classic Pessac-Léognan taste profile, with delicious red fruit and spicy flavours. Fairly long finish. The wine is already pleasant to drink, but will be even better in two or three years. This wine will reveal all its deliciousness and complexity with poultry, beef, or duck confit.

Consumption period

2018 - 2030
