A precise Chateau Quintus 2016

The great summer drought of 2016 finally disappeared with the rainy season in mid-September. The rain helped the grapes through the finals step of maturation. Harvest in Saint-Emilion occurred in October without any interruptions. Chateau Quintus 2016 is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.

Chateau Quintus 2016 has a mature and powerful nose, that is not excessive. This Saint-Emilion is dominated by its fruitiness. The attack is delicate and silky. The wine expands and develops with finesse. After a wonderful 2015 vintage, 2016 is fresh and well-structured. 2016 has exceeded all exceptions, thanks to the unique terroir.

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.
