The Refinement and Precision of a Saint-Émilion at the Summit of its Elegance

Owned by the Domaines Clarence Dillon (Haut-Brion), Château Quintus has won the hearts of the most demanding enthusiasts of Saint-Émilion. In an area on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region where the estates usually have about ten hectares of vines, the estate oversees a rare 28-hectare vineyard on the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion.

Under the impetus of the technical teams of Domaines Clarence Dillon, the vintages of Château Quintus have been distinguished by their precision and finesse. The wine’s character highlights the masterful extractions and close control of the ageing process, which has revealed a dense and satisfying tannic structure, hallmark of the great wines produced in clay and limestone soils.

A superb success for the property, the Château Quintus 2017 displays a suppleness and delectable energy. The fruit sparkles in its purity and the freshness of its aromas. The bouquet reveals vibrant notes of red and black berries in fruit that has achieved ideal maturity. On the palate, the wine delivers an elegant texture with perfectly polished and integrated tannins. A model of balance, the palate retains its freshness and tasty acidity, while a long and vivacious finish unfolds. A superb and delicious Château Quintus.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 54.4% Merlot and 45.6% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Quintus is deep garnet-purple in color and charges out of the gate with exuberant scents of blueberry compote, plum preserves and fresh mulberries with touches of sandalwood, powdered cinnamon, potpourri and forest floor plus a waft of black tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with expressive black and blue fruit layers, framed by wonderfully velvety tannins, finishing long and layered.
