Tasting Notes:
  • Colour: Intense, dark colour.
  • Nose: The nose is rich and complex, displaying very ripe red and black fruit notes. Oaky hints enhance the purity of the fruit, without being overpowering.
  • Palate: Starts out powerful yet subtle on the palate, becoming well-structured, with smooth, tight-knit tannins without any aggression. The delicious and fruity mid-palate paves the way for a delicious long aftertaste.

Description

Chateau Quintus 2018

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.The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather. The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering. A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions. A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
