The precision and freshness of a Saint-Emilion wine by Château Quintus

The producer

Château Quintus was born following the union of the Château Tertre Daugay and Château L'Arrosée terroirs, both acquired by Domaine Clarence Dillon, a family company, in 2011 and 2013. Château Quintus is thus the fifth property owned by the Domaine Clarence Dillon group, along with Châteaux Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. The property’s name comes from the Gallo-Roman tradition of naming the fifth child Quintus.

The vineyard

This 28-hectare Saint-Émilion Grand Cru vineyard is unique due to its patchwork of terroirs. The vines, which are 30 years old on average, are planted on a plateau, on a succession of south-facing limestone strata, as well as on south-facing clay-limestone and gravel soils to the north of the property.

The vintage

Despite the coolness and the high rainfall during the winter and spring, flowering was homogenous. The great summer drought fortunately ended in mid-September with a rainy spell that was beneficial for the vineyard. The alternation between sunny days and cool nights during the month of October was an ideal way to refine the degree of ripeness and give birth to a rich in colour, fresh and fruity vintage.

The blend

Château Quintus 2016 comprises a blend of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%).

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful garnet red colour.

Nose

The wine expresses intense fruity fragrances.

Palate

A supple and silky attack gives way to a meaty, deep and precise mouth. The fruity aromas blend harmoniously with subtle woody notes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Quintus is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and features a quiet intensity of chocolate-covered cherries, warm mulberries and plum preserves scents with underlying hints of dried lavender, star anise and potpourri. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with perfumed black fruit layers, framed by seductively plush tannins and great freshness and finishing with fantastic length.
