Château de Quantin White

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.

Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Tasting Comment

Appearance

This wine has a relatively deep straw-yellow colour.

Nose

The nose is fairly developed, with overtones of musk, beeswax, flowers (acacia), peaches, and pears.  There are also aromas reminiscent of candied fruit.

Mouth

The wine features flavours of white fruit and acacia on the palate, with pleasant honey nuances. The mouth feel is fairly rich and there is a slight bitterness on the finish. This wine is ideal as an aperitif or with fish, seafood, and poultry.
