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

Le Dragon has a beautiful vermilion colour. The nose is wonderfully fresh,
with hints of cherry and raspberry. The ripeness of the fruit comes through wonderfully
when the wine is swirled in the glass. It starts off quite smooth and soft on the palate,
going on to reveal rich tannin that is well-integrated even at this early stage.
The aftertaste is relatively long. It is also appetising and gives every indication of fine balance.

The Climate

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.
