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.


label of 2018 Château de Quantin red
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 55% / Merlot 45 %.

Weather

2018 was one of the warmest years since 1900, featuring above-average temperatures, the second hottest summer to date, and abundant sunshine… Heavy rainfall in the first half of the year was followed by persistent, near-record drought conditions in September.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Nice deep red colour, close to garnet.

Nose

Nose is intense, complex, marked by tasty notes of red fruits, but also of tobacco and vanilla, associated with more spicy aromas on the finish

Mouth

Attack is frank. The mid-palate is characterised by a nice volume, with well-melted tannins. Nice finish, with a lot of roundness. The red fruit and liquorice notes are a real treat on the palate. Well-balanced, this wine also has good ageing potential. It can be enjoyed now with veal axoa, a mushroom omelette or ribs with caramel.
