de Quintus

Receiving the same care given to Château Quintus and Le Dragon de Quintus, the Saint-Emilion de Quintus was launched in 2014. Plots situated on the low ground of the plains of the Dordogne contribute mainly to the production of this wine.

Tasting notes

Beautiful crystal-clear cherry-red colour.
The first impression on the nose is of a fruity, fresh, and enjoyable wine.
Swirling in the glass releases oaky and spicy notes combined with fruity overtones.
Starts out generous on the palate, going on to show considerable tannin, finishing on a very pleasant aftertaste.

The weather

Vegetative growth started on the 13th of March, then was accelerated by a warm, sunny spring. Two incidents of frost in late April served as a reminder to winegrowers that viticulture is fragile and that nature cannot be tamed.

The water deficit, which reached 50% in July and August, was a distinguishing feature of the vintage. However, thanks to significant rainfall in June, the vines were spared from the drought. Above-average sunshine and a spell of very hot weather (29 days over 30°C), moderated by relatively cool nights (enabling the grapes to ripen without stress) also resulted in favourable winegrowing conditions.

. Weather during the month of September was fine for picking – with the exception of the second week, when it rained, although this precipitation helped the Cabernets to ripen slowly and well.
