Château de Quantin Red

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.

Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Cabernet sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

This charming wine has a beautiful ruby-red colour with a garnet-red rim.

Nose

The powerful, forthcoming nose has toasty overtones with hints of chocolate.

Mouth

Fully worthy of the excellent 2009 vintage, this Pessac-Léognan is straightforward and youthful on the palate. It features attractive, complex flavours of red fruit, leather and vanilla on the palate. These are underpinned by a fine tannic texture that will enable the wine to age if so desired. It is nevertheless delicious today with grilled red meats. Duck breast would be perfect.
