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.


label château de Quantin white 2010
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Elegant and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon blanc.

Weather

Winter was harsh (many days with frost) and spring rather chilly. There was a great deal of sunshine in 2010 and a long period of drought from 21 June to late September, which was favourable for ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Pale yellow, very elegant.

Nose

An attractive blend of fruit and barely noticeable oak on the nose, dominated by exotic ripe citrus.

Mouth

The palate is equally pleasing, typical sauvignon, a fine accompaniment to scallop kebabs or grilled poultry, or even a lentil salad…(January, 2012)
