Very perfumed and beautiful with violet and lavender aromas. Pretty ripe fruit. Subtle. Medium to full body, extremely silky tannins and a savory aftertaste. Linear and racy. Drink in 2020.

The 2014 Quintus has really come together nicely since I tasted it from barrel. Supple, pliant and wonderfully fleshy in the glass, this pretty wine possesses lovely richness and texture. Dark stone fruit, leather, spice and dried flowers infuse the creamy, expressive finish. The 2014 could be cellared for a few years to allow some of the youthful tannins to soften further, but it is quite expressive today. This is the first vintage of Quintus that incorporates fruit from both of the Dillon family's Saint-Émilion properties, formerly known as Tertre Daugay and L'Arrosée. The two adjacent sites are now being farmed as one. Among other things, this means fruit is harvested according to ripeness, rather than by estate. The blend is 69 % Merlot and 31 % Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times

The 2014 Quintus has a concentrated nose with pure red cherries, raspberry and cranberry scents laced with smoke and wet stone. This is fragrant and very appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, almost Burgundian in terms of purity. The oak is beautifully disguised and it is blessed with a wonderful, caressing lace-like finish that belies the persistence that comes through. This Quintus appears to have really blossomed over the last year. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

91–93. Barrel Sample. This wine is rich and soft, showing ripe blackberry fruits. The tannins are firmly buried in the rich fruit flavors, with bright acidity and ripe fruit tones dominate the palate.  — R.V.  (4/2/2015)

The 2014 Château Quintus is a small step back from the 2015. Dense purple/plum colored, with terrific notes of currants, cassis, new leather, and toasted spices, this beauty shines on the palate and is medium to full-bodied, seamless, sexy, and ready to go. It’s already hard to resist but will keep for 10-15 years.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator
A pure, focused style, with a core of plum and cassis notes caressed by light floral and tobacco accents. Ends with a chalky thread through the refined finish. Best from 2018 through 2026. 1,500 cases made.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
The Château Quintus 2014 was picked between 29 September until 8 October and consists of 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc. It represents 23% of the the total crop that of course, now includes L’Arrosée (three hectares that were unclassified now used for a 3rd label.) It has a candied bouquet, clearly with much more fruit concentration than the deuxième vin: hints of licorice developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannin, soft and plush in the mouth, a generous Quintus in the making, one with a crowd-pleasing aspect to it without compromising on quality.
