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 . 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-Léognan wines and is producing excellent wines worthy of representing Pessac Leognan!
