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

Dark red colour. The nose is fresh, fruity and understated
promising a real treat for the taste buds. Starts out very pleasant on the palate,
with no hardness whatsoever, becoming smooth
and delicious with a medium-long finish.
Overall, a particularly delicious Saint-Émilion.

The weather

The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather. The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering. A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions. A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
