The Wines

The Wines

Quintus wines, based on fruit, are the expression of Saint-Emilion’s exceptional clay-limestone terroir. Finesse, elegance and minerality characterize them. The topography of the property, with its various orientations, facing south, west and north, enables us to produce balanced wines from one vintage to the next.

Château Quintus

Château Quintus

Château Quintus is the 5th child within the Domaine Clarence Dillon family of wines. Its name is a tribute to the Gallo-Romans, creators of Saint-Emilion’s vineyards, who had the custom of naming their fifth child Quintus.

Dragon de Quintus

Le Dragon de Quintus is the second wine of Château Quintus. The name originates from the dragon statue that towers above the magical terroir of Saint-Emilion, perched high upon the promontory, where the estate is located.

Saint-Emilion de Quintus

Receiving the same care given to Château Quintus and Le Dragon de Quintus, the Saint-Emilion de Quintus was launched in 2014. Plots situated on the low ground of the plains of the Dordogne contribute mainly to the production of this wine.

A unique bottle

Prince Robert of Luxembourg designed a new bottle, specifically for Château Quintus, inspired by Château Haut-Brion’s antique bottles, dating from the mid-19th century, as shown by the one discovered recently in a pirates’ cache near the island of Mayotte, in the Indian Ocean.  As in the past, an embossed seal is engraved on the neck of these bottles.  Quintus is a recent adventure for the Dillon family and the immense potential of this fabulous terroir is gradually awakening.
