Chateau Lafont Menaut White
Coming from the same family which owns Chateau 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-Lafi tte, Lafont Menaut is at once elegant and rich, with intense minerally fl avours and classic Bor-
deaux Sauvignon Blanc aromas of citrus and exotic fruit . Philibert Perrin has devoted the last 6 years to replanting and
exploiting the potential of the extraordinary gravel mounds that make up the vineyard at Lafont Menaut. Well situated
and well exposed to the sun, the estate covers some 10 hectares of vines and produces red and white Pessac-Leognan
wines and is producing excellent wines worthy of representing Pessac Leognan!
(100% Sauvignon Blanc)-aged in oak (of
which 20-20% is new) for 15-18 months.
