Le Dragon de Quintus
Le Dragon has a beautiful vermilion colour. The nose is wonderfully fresh, with hints of cherry and raspberry. The ripeness of the fruit comes through wonderfully when the wine is swirled in the glass. It starts off quite smooth and soft on the palate, going on to reveal rich tannin that is well-integrated even at this early stage. The aftertaste is relatively long. It is also appetising and gives every indication of fine balance.
76% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon – The harvest lasted from the 23rd of September to the 9th of October.
Beautiful, dark, garnet-red colour. The nose is rather closed at this time. However, after a few minutes in the glass it opens up to reveal a rich, complex bouquet of red and black fruit reflecting grapes picked at just the right moment. 2015 Quintus is smooth, even creamy, on the palate, with a tight-knit tannic structure. This tannin is immediately perceptible, but in no way aggressive. The middle palate is full-bodied, and the finish is delicious and fairly long. This powerful, tasty wine is also very elegant.
