Perched on the plateau of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Quintus has one of the oldest vineyards in the appellation. The Dragon de Quintus is the second wine of the château. Its name echoes the statue of the dragon that watches over the Saint-Émilion terroir.
The 28-hectare vineyard of Chateau Quintus is perched on a plateau southwest of Saint-Émilion.
An early bud break on March 22, due to the warm winter, was followed by mid-flowering on May 27, a sign that the vine had returned to a classic vine cycle because of a cool spring. The very hot summer resulted in very consistent veraison. At Chateau Quintus, the 2019 vintage is surely one of the best produced to date.
The Dragon of Quintus 2019 displays in the glass a beautiful dark red color. The first nose reveals intense and fresh fruit. The second not offers woody notes, which mingle with complex aromas of black fruit. On the palate, the Dragon of Quintus 2019 attacks with great elegance, then evolves great density. The fruit is at the core of the structure and texture of this fine wine.
