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 2020 Château de Quantin white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon blanc

Weather

2020 was marked by very mild temperatures and contrasting precipitation: heavy spring rainfall was followed by an intense summer drought. The fairly mild winter led to early bud break. The summer heat gave way to cool nights in late August, ideal for ripening grapes.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Brilliant, the colour is a nice yellow, slightly golden, with some green highlights.

Nose

Nose is fresh, very pleasant, with notes of citrus zest (lemon, grapefruit), but also of white flowers (acacia)...

Mouth

The attack is full of freshness. We have here a beautiful expression of Sauvignon: fatness and roundness combine perfectly, and form a beautiful balance with the freshness. This ensemble brings out particularly well the delicate citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit) mixed with white fruit aromas (peach). This is a wine that can be enjoyed without delay with a seafood platter, grilled fish or even a blanquette of veal.
