The origins of Chteau de Terrefort-Quancard go back into the mists of time. Part of the building dates from before the 16th century. It has been owned by the Quancard family since 1891. The Chteau de Terrefort-Quancard, situated on the highest point of the hillside of the commune of Cubzac-les-Ponts, looks out over the Dordogne, between the Ctes de Bourg and the Ctes de Fronsac. The vines of the Chteau, straddling the famous 45th parallel , benefit from a moderately warm, humid climate, with masses of sunshine and mild winters. It enjoys a micro-climate ideally suited to wine growing.

An appealing garnet red and ruby colour. A delicate bouquet with fragrances of bracken, candied fruit and spices. Full-bodied and ripe on the palate with mellowed tannins. A generous and delightfully fruity finish.
Ideal for a baron of lamb, lamb fillet in pastry, a Bordeaux-style sirloin steak, or soft cheeses.
