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.

Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

2017 Château de Quantin is a lovely pale yellow colour, just waiting to be tasted.

Nose

The bouquet is particularly charming with very ripe Sauvignon Blanc aromas accompanied by citrus and white fruit overtones. The overall impression is enhanced by subtle hints of oak, emblematic of Pessac-Léognan.

Mouth

Starts out very fine and elegant on the palate, becoming rich and full-bodied with an attractive freshness. Its fruity notes and subtle oaky overtones make for a delicious wine to be enjoyed with blanquette of veal, mussels with chorizo or salmon soufflé.

Consumption period

2019 - 2024
