Quintus 2017 (750ML)
92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: “The 2017 Quintus has much more complexity than Le Dragon on the nose, a mélange of black and red fruit, cold steel and sous-bois scents bubbling up with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin that lend this Quintus a fleshy texture. Spicier than previous vintages thanks to the contribution of the Cabernet Franc, it offers black pepper and bay leaf notes towards what feels like a substantial finish given the growing season. Very fine.” 09/19
94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “The 2017 Quintus is super impressive today. Sweet floral and spice nuances give the 2017 its striking aromatic upper register. Rich and dense on the palate, Quintus is a bold, hedonistically opulent Saint-Émilion in 2017. Soaring Franc overtones play off the Merlot nicely, adding both aromatic presence and a real feeling of saline intensity that comes through, especially on the finish. Today, the 2017 is a touch exuberant - almost too much so. Another few years in bottle should help it settle down. The 2017 is not at all subtle, but it has a lot to offer. Here, too, élevage has done wonders for the wine.” 12/19
94 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: “Really perfumed with blackcurrants and blueberries. Flowers and cookies. Medium to full body, round and creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Slightly austere from the tannins at the end, but a solid red for the vintage. Better to drink after 2022.” 01/20
91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com: “The grand vin from this estate is the 2017 Chateau Quintus, which is 54.4% Merlot and 45.6% Cabernet Franc. It has lots of chocolatey red and black fruit as well as complex tobacco, dried soil, and spicy nuances. It packs more fruit and richness than either the Saint-Emilion or Dragon De Quintus cuvees, has ripe tannins, good concentration, and outstanding length. This is a classic 2017 that's going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and drink beautifully for over a decade.” 02/20
