The Intensity and Freshness of a Sumptuous Saint-Emilion

Owned by Domaines Clarence Dillon (Haut-Brion) since 2011, Chateau Quintus is one of the most beautiful references of Saint-Emilion. Thanks to the expertise of the committed team, this historic Cru shines bright among the estates on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region with wines that are distinguished by their precision and a structure that recalls the identity of the greatest limestone-clay terroirs.

The name of the second wine, Le Dragon de Quintus, was inspired by the location of the property. Situated on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Quintus reigns over a vineyard that expands over a rare and vast area of 28 hectares. A mythical animal, the Dragon symbolizes the ability to defend and protect, while sensing danger from afar. The dragon symbolizes the protector of this exceptional terroir.

Product of an atypical “winemaker’s vintage,” the Le Dragon de Quintus 2017 brilliantly reflects the success of the property. The fruit sparkles in its purity and the freshness of its aromas. The Le Dragon de Quintus 2017 greets the palate with a harmonious softness, structured by fine tannins. This wine reveals great density and perfect balance, while the maturation in oak appears at the end of the mouth in an elegant and discreetly woody quality. A sumptuous Saint-Émilion.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 le Dragon de Quintus is deep garnet-purple in color and prances out of the glass with exuberant boysenberries, mulberries and warm plums notes plus hints of cinnamon stick, cloves and aniseed with a waft of forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully juicy, with an elegant structure of plush tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a restrained mineral note.
