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.

Tasting Comment

Mouth

Discreet, but always elegant, Château de Quantin's white wine is fruity and has an unusual long, fresh, lemony aftertaste reflecting its one and only grape variety : Sauvignon Blanc. White fruit, citrus, and floral aromas combine to form a luscious treat. It will soon be a delight to drink with fish and seafood.

Represented by half a dozen wines starting with the first edition, André Lurton has frequently been cited in the Guide Hachette. However, this year's Guide highlights a château that has stayed somewhat in the background in the past. Like Château Cruzeau, the vineyard is located in the southern part of the appellation. Planted on gravelly soil, Sauvignon Blanc vines produce an extremely attractive white wine here. The elegant bouquet combines tropical fruit (mango and lychee), citrus and white fruit, accompanied by a hint of menthol. There is little oak because the wine is only partially aged in barrel, and then only for a fairly short time (six months).  The wine is rich, round, and beautifully fresh on the palate. These characteristics suggest that it will be ideal with fish and seafood dishes
