TASTING NOTES:

 
Wine Rating: RP 90 points
Drink by: 2019 - 2032 

The 2014 Quintus was quite backward and tight-lipped when I tasted it from the bottle: broody black cherries and black plum, a touch of clove and fresh mint eventually surfacing.
The palate is silky smooth on the entry, a Saint Emilion that caresses and seduces the senses. It is very pure with lovely black cherry, blueberry, and white pepper notes, although I would be seeking a little more structure and tension on the finish. It is a wine that goes out to give pleasure, but I hope there is more personality and terroir expression that will develop in the future.


In June 2011, Domaine Clarence Dillon, owners of Château Haut-Brion and Château La Mission Haut-Brion, acquired a beautiful estate in Saint-Emilion, today renamed Château Quintus. In October 2013, Château Quintus in turn acquired the neighboring property, Château L’Arrosée, and these two exceptional estates are now united in order to produce one of the very finest wines of Saint-Emilion.

“By uniting these two exceptional estates we have improved our team’s ability to make one of the very finest wines of Saint-Emilion. This merger of equals will prove that the whole can be greater than the two parts. I am confident that this vineyard will soon come to rival its Domaine Clarence Dillon siblings as one of the finest wines of our region” Prince Robert of Luxembourg (President, Quintus SAS).
