Château de Quantin Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château de Quantin Rouge

The vines at Quantin grow on deep gravel to produce a red wine with very ripe, smoky aromas. This is very elegant on the palate with solid, well-extracted tannin and an attractive personality in all vintages.


label of 2019 Château de Quantin red
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 58% / Cabernet Sauvignon 42%

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Attractive dark red colour, intense, with some carmine reflections.

Nose

Pleasant nose, a little shy at first, but after shaking it reveals tasty notes of black fruits (blueberry, blackberry but also elderberry), associated with a very discreet woodiness.

Mouth

The attack is supple and fruity. On the palate, it is a wine with good fullness, volume and a pleasant freshness. Nice length. The notes of black fruit, very ripe (blueberry, blackberry) are also present with a spicy touch on the finish. The tannins are well blended. This Château de Quantin 2019 is very pleasant to drink, especially with grilled meats, pork fillets with chanterelles, but also cheeses.
