Wine region: Bordeaux
Grape: 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc
Tasting note: 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. This 2016 Dragon de Quintus is unquestionably the most full and complete made since 2011.
James Suckling - 93 points
'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.'
