The Château Quintus, property of the Domaines Clarence Dillon is the previous château Tertre Daugay renamed Quintus. This 2014 vintage, Saint-Emilion blend is composed of 69% of Merlot and 31% of Cabernet Franc. The robe is dense and purplish-blue while the nose is peppery, spicy with a raspberry touch. The suave and round mouth reveals mature and delicious tannins. The end is highlighted by an expressive and fine taste of freshness and fruits. Harmonious and elegant!
Chateau Quintus 2014
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Quintus was quite backward and tight-lipped when I tasted it from bottle: broody black cherries and black plum, a touch of clove and fresh mint eventually surfacing. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, a Saint Emilion that caresses and seduces the senses. It is very pure with lovely black cherry, blueberry and white pepper notes, although I would be seeking a little more structure and tension on the finish. It is a wine that goes out to give pleasure, but I hope there is more personality and terroir expression that will develop in the future.
