Pre-Sale Ships after July 31, 2021
92 – 93 Points James Suckling - A soft, round red with blackberry, chocolate and hints of spice and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with silky tannins and a juicy finish.
90 – 92 Points Jeb Dunnuck - The second wine of Château Quintus, the 2020 Le Dragon De Quintus is one impressive looking barrel sample, offering lots of cassis and black cherry fruits as well as medium to full body, ripe, soft tannins, plenty of tobacco, earth, and green flower notes, and outstanding length on the finish. It doesn't have the richness of the Grand Vin but has lots of class and should drink well for 10-12 years or more.
90 – 92 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - Composed of 84.7% Merlot and 15.3% Cabernet Franc, while possessing an alcohol of 15.2%, the 2020 le Dragon de Quintus has a deep garnet-purple color and notions of plum preserves, kirsch, black raspberries and cinnamon toast, plus hints of mossy tree bark and incense. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with juicy black and red berries, supported by soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and spicy.
Tasting Note - A beautiful dark, purple color. The wine presents a powerful, fruity first nose, whereas after swirling woody, vanilla-scented hints mingle with aromas of ripe black fruit. A spicy note follows and gives lovely complexity. The first taste is supple and silky, then the wine progresses on a delicate, tightly-knit texture of tannin. The sensation of fleshiness persists, flavors of fruit combine with woody notes and make the wine very charming. Without being as concentrated as its elder brother, this Dragon is particularly delicious and pleasant.
