Chateau Lafont Menaut Pessac Léognan Blanc 2013

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.

In 1990, Philibert Perrin bought nearby plots of land that used to be part of Montesquieu’s estate (Montesquieu was a famous writer-philosopher in the 18th Century). He undertook a clearing program that uncovered an abandoned washhouse called Menaut Fountain, which gave its name to our Château Lafont-Menaut wine. Over the years, Philibert Perrin has planted 15 ha of red vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) and 3.5 ha of white (Sauvignon) in Martillac, just 15 km away from Bordeaux, in the very heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation and succeeded in bringing back to life that ancient and forgotten vineyard.
