Château Lafont Menaut

AOC Pessac-Léognan White

Coming from the same family which owns Château Carbonnieux one of Bordeaux's most acclaimed dry white wines, it is hardly surprising that Philibert Perrin has shown a true talent for making white wine. Close to another celebrated property, Smith Haut-Lafitte, Lafont Menaut is at once elegant and rich, with intense minerally flavours and classic Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc aromas of citrus and exotic fruit.

    TASTING NOTES

    Beautiful, brilliant pale yellow. Expressive nose of lemon and grapefruit. Swirling reveals slightly sweet, vanilla notes, followed by tropical fruit. Overall impression of freshness. Aromatic at the attack, beautifully achieved balance between the fullness of the palate and the freshness of the Sauvignon. Well-rounded at the mid-palate and this continues through to the finish while remaining fresh and aromatic. The register on the palate is one of citrus fruit with a hint of toastiness. Food match oysters and other shellfish, seafood, cheese
