Le Dragon de Quintus

Château Quintus Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2018

Climate: Winter 2018-2019 is mild and dry. In spring, temperatures are cool, the vines grow slowly.
The flowering is beautiful without coulure or millerandage. Storm Miguel swept through Aquitaine on June 7 without any consequences for our grapes. The growth of the vine is supported by notable
and regular rains, the vine develops a very beautiful vegetative surface. June 22 marks the sudden end of the rains, followed by a series of heatwave episodes which follow one another and place the month of July in 3rd place among the hottest Julys after 2006 and 2013, with a record at 42° C on July 23. Fortunately it rained on July 26, then in August the nights were cool and favored the synthesis of anthocyanins. Veraison is slow but without blocking. In September, we benefit from mild, continental and dry weather, interspersed with welcome rains. These conditions are ideal, they allow us to harvest all the grape varieties at the best time in terms of their maturity and in excellent conditions.

Some data Harvest date From September 19 to October 9 Merlot Noir blend: 86%; Cabernet Franc: 14% New barrels 33.5% Alcoholic content 15% Aging date April 12, 15 and 16, 2021

Tasting note Beautiful dark red color. The first nose is intense, fruity and fresh. With agitation, the nose becomes more complex and a discreet woodiness mixed with very ripe black fruits. The wine
enters the palate fine and elegant then it evolves on a fairly dense, moderately long tannic structure.

The fruit accompanies the structure and the flesh. This Dragon leaves an impression of delicious
balance

The 2018 le Dragon de Quintus is composed of 75.2% Merlot and 24.8% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers expressive scents of plum preserves, blueberry compote and kirsch, plus suggestions of spice cake, fallen leaves and unsmoked cigars. The palate is full-bodied with bags of black fruit preserves and an earthy undercurrent, framed by soft tannins and seamless fres
