TASTING NOTES

"A delicious and fresh St.-Emilion with ripe blackberries and a subtle, mineral note that shows clearly on the long, crisp and juicy finish. Second wine of Château Quintus. Already friendly, but better from 2020." JamesSuckling.com

"Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 le Dragon de Quintus leaps from the glass with bold blackberry preserves, stewed plums and wild blueberry scents plus suggestions of new leather, menthol and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and blue fruit preserves with a velvety frame and lovely spicy sparks on the finish."

"This has a rich and warm expression of plum sauce and blackberry preserve flavors, laced with subtle black tea and singed incense notes. The fresh acidity lets the finish hang nicely. Accessible now. Drink now through 2028. 3,400 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Le Dragon de Quintus is dark, pliant and supple. Dark cherry, mocha, espresso and spice notes all flesh out in this succulent, racy second wine from Quintus. Élevage has given the 2016 soft contours and also a bit more oak influence than the wine showed en primeur. I would give the 2016 a few years in bottle to shed some of its baby fat. The 2016 spent 12 months in 29% new oak. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next few years, while the wine remains supple." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
