2012 Dragon de Quintus, St-Emilion (Previously $40)
This second wine of the Haut-Brion's newly acquired Château Quintus is rich, with layers of black plums and dense juicy tannins. A dark Merlot-dominated wine, it's smooth and likely to be ready soon. (RV)
A solid wine with blackberry, plum and berry character. Full and chewy. Solid.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Their second wine, called Le Dragon de Quintus, has elegant raspberry and blueberry notes in a blue-fruited style. Minerality is present, and the wine is perfumed, floral, medium-bodied ... (RP)
The 2012 Le Dragon de Quintus is deep, fleshy and nuanced throughout. Tobacco, herbs, menthol, licorice and sweet red plums take shape in an open-knit, gracious Saint-Emilion that should drink well for a number of years. Le Dragon de Quintus is the second wine made by Quintus (formerly Tertre Daugay), which is now owned by the Dillon family. (AG)
A light singed mesquite frame handles the core of black cherry and plum fruit, while subtle tea and licorice root notes line the lightly firm finish. Has some charm. (Web-2015) (JM)
