Château de Quantin White

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

Vines have been grown on Château de Quantin's gravelly rises since the 17th century. These produce delicious, fruity, dry white wines with great aromatic expression. This fresh, crisp Pessac-Léognan can also be enjoyed young.


label of 2019 Château de Quantin white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Pale yellow colour, with some golden reflections.

Nose

Very Sauvignon, the nose is expressive without being aggressive, with a pleasant mix of white fruit notes (peach, nectarine), citrus, enhanced by a hint of smoke.

Mouth

Plenty of freshness on the palate, generous with good fat.  Delicious aromas of white fruit (nectarine) and citrus fruit (grapefruit). Well integrated oak. Fresh on the finish, enhanced by a hint of salinity.  It will be appreciated with cooked fish and seafood, grilled or smoked white meats.

Consumption period

2021 - 2025
