2015 Saint-Emilion de Quintus
The year 2015 appears to be the warmest and sunniest, throughout our country, since the beginning of meteorological statistics. A long heat wave and dry period allowed to achieve excellent flowering conditions until the arrival, in August, of miraculous rains.
This rain enabled the vines to maintain the necessary water reserves and to provide requisite nourishment for perfect ripeness. The harvest began in September under a clear blue sky. Thanks to this ideal weather, we were able to wait for optimum ripeness for each grape variety.
All the conditions are there to allow 2015 to join the greatest vintages of Bordeaux.

This wine has a dark red colour.
The bouquet features ripe fruit aromas. Swirling unveils the light complexity of this sun-bathed vintage. Balanced and discrete woody hints supplement the aromatic palette. It starts off being very generous and full bodied, two characteristics of this vintage. Rich round tannins enhance the middle palate and finish.
Definitely this 2015 Saint-Emilion is a great third wine!
