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

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon blanc

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appearance

2016 Château de Quantin is a very attractive pale-yellow colour interspersed with green highlights.

Nose

The nose is fresh and reminiscent of a pure Sauvignon Blanc with citrus notes, combining a subtle blend of gunflint, freshly-pressed grapes and menthol.

Mouth

Starts out rich on the palate with enticing freshness. Featuring tremendous balance this wine has all the hallmarks of this outstanding terroir, which has forged the reputation of the Graves region over the centuries. This delicious and attractive wine is ideal served with seafood blanquette, cod in a cream sauce or tarragon-infused chicken.
