de Quintus

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.

Tasting notes

Featuring a beautiful raspberry colour, Le Dragon de Quintus has a floral,
tremendously delicate nose with a subtle hint of oak. The wine is ethereal,
smooth, full-bodied, and altogether charming on the palate.
This is a very enjoyable wine that will ensure immediate pleasure.

The Climate

2013 was a veritable obstacle course for winegrowers. For a start, a rainy spring upset flowering, causing coulure and millerandage. Fungal diseases were nevertheless largely contained. Summer was warm and dry, although a heavy rainstorm in July with strong winds reduced the potential crop. The harvest took place later than usual, with alternating periods of sun and rain. Very rigorous sorting (both manual and with an optical sorting machine) meant that only fruit in good condition was retained. The weather conditions throughout the growing season led to a small crop, but modern winemaking techniques and close, expert attention guaranteed the quality of the wines.
