TASTING NOTES

"Ripe-fruit aromas with strawberries and tea. Aromatic. Full body and round and silky yet chewy tannins. Juicy and flavorful on the finish. Needs two or three years to soften. Pretty second wine of Quintus. Drink in 2020 and onwards." JamesSuckling.com

"Composed of 76% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 le Dragon de Quintus reveals a medium to deep garnet color with notes of crushed black currants, black cherries and mulberries plus touches of garrigue, dried herbs and rose hips. Medium to full-bodied with loads of juicy black fruit and earthy layers supported by ripe, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, it finishes with great persistence." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Bright, fresh and relatively open, with enticing raspberry and blackberry fruit inlaid with subtle spice, black tea and singed sandalwood notes. Offers a slightly racy edge on the finish thanks to a fine chalky hint. Drink now through 2023. 4,300 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Very aérien nose - quite unlike modern St-Émilion stereotype. Juicy, sweet and round. Some marked freshness on the end - some of the less ripe grapes in here? But lashings of charm." JancisRobinson.com
