Chateau QUINTUS Saint-Emilion Grand Cru "Le Dragon de Quintus" 2016
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Tasting notes: Beautiful red colour with mauve highlights. Ripe and fairly intense bouquet of crunchy red fruit (cherry). The oak is already well-integrated. The wine starts of quite smooth on the palate, immediately going on to reveal excellent fruit. It develops softly on the palate with plenty of tannin, but that is rich and never aggressive.
About the winery:
Château Quintus is the 5th child within the Domaine Clarence Dillon family of wines. Its name is a tribute to the Gallo-Romans, creators of Saint-Emilion’s vineyards, who had the custom of naming their fifth child Quintus. The environmental specificity of Château Quintus lies in its Mediterranean Green Belt, a real haven of biodiversity, as well as in the woods and grounds of the estate.
Le Dragon de Quintus is the second wine of Château Quintus. The name originates from the dragon statue that towers above the magical terroir of Saint-Emilion, perched high upon the promontory, where the estate is located.
