90% merlot, 10% cabernet franc. Good full plum, nice wood smoke and floral notes, touch of fig, lovely cool fruit here spicy, quite open but there are lots of dusty tannin too on the finish, peppery very good.
A salty and minerally red with plums, leaves and tobacco and lots of blackberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Second wine of Quintus.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Picked up to 20 October. Bright crimson. Fresh and fragrant on the nose with great suavity. Very poised.
The 2016 Le Dragon de Quintus is a gorgeous second wine with the potential to develop into one of the sleepers of the vintage. The flavors are remarkably pure and precise, dark red cherry, raspberry, flowers and sweet spice give the Dragon unusual depth. A closing burst of floral and spice-infused freshness and lift makes it impossible to resist a second taste. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this exemplary Saint-Émilion.
The 2016 Le Dragon de Quintus is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was picked between 3 and 20 October. I found that aromatics tightly wound and a little unresponsive when I tasted it at Haut-Brion, though I managed to coax blackcurrant and bilberry scents, a touch of pressed flowers with time. I would like to see more vigor once in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin: blackberry mingling with white pepper and cloves, nicely balanced with commendable presence on the grainy finish. Hopefully the aromatics will wake up with time in barrel and perhaps 12-18 months in bottle.
