91 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 76% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 le Dragon de Quintus reveals a medium to deep garnet color with notes of crushed black currants, black cherries and mulberries plus touches of garrigue, dried herbs and rose hips. Medium to full-bodied with loads of juicy black fruit and earthy layers supported by ripe, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, it finishes with great persistence." 2/18
90 Points, Neal Martin: "The 2015 le Dragon de Quintus is a blend of 76% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. In a perverse way, the nose is less engaging than the Saint-Ã‰milion de Quintus, much more withdrawn with light black cherry and boysenberry fruit, a slight Burgundian element to these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that frame a nicely structured wine. There is plenty of tart red cherry fruit mixed with orange rind and a touch of graphite, leading to a composed finish. Give this a year for the nose to open and you will have a fine second wine. Anticipated maturity: 2019 - 2027."
94 Points, James Suckling: "Ripe-fruit aromas with strawberries and tea. Aromatic. Full body and round and silky yet chewy tannins. Juicy and flavorful on the finish. Needs two or three years to soften. Pretty second wine of Quintus. Drink in 2020 and onwards." 2/18
91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com: "The second wine of the estate, the 2015 Le Dragon de Quintus is more classic in style, as well as balanced. Offering notes of cassis, blackberries, plums, damp earth and lead pencil, it's medium-bodied, balanced and nicely concentrated, with beautiful purity and freshness. There's no harm drinking this today, but it will keep for a decade." 11/17
