Winemakers Note

Le Dragon is the second wine of Château Quintus. The inspiration for the name came from the dragon statue dominating the magical terroir of Saint-Emilion from the estate’s privileged location, perched on a promontory. Le Dragon has a beautiful dark red color. The first nose is intense, fruity and fresh. When the wine is swirled in the glass, the nose becomes more complex and a discreet woody note mingles with very ripe black fruit. The first impression is fine and elegant, leading to a fairly dense tannic structure of medium length. The fruit accompanies the structure and substance. This Le Dragon leaves an impression of exquisite balance. 2020 calls to mind the 2000 vintage and is already considered a fabulous vintage, one which required a tremendous ability to adapt, both for the people involved and for the work of teams in the vineyard and in the vat house. The property The story of Quintus is as ancient as that of Saint-Emilion itself, as one of the region’s oldest vineyards, planted as early as the 4th or 5th century B.C. Perched on a limestone promontory (mound) culminating at an altitude of 62 meters, Château Quintus is located on the southwestern extremity of the Saint-Emilion plateau and shares its beautiful exposure and fabulous microclimate with the most renowned properties of this appellation. With 28 hectares of vines, the estate boasts exceptional biodiversity thanks to its two-hectare park with majestic holm oaks, low walls and slopes. The teams’ daily efforts to developing this incredible biodiversity have already been rewarded by a double certification: High Environmental Value and ISO14001. Tasting A beautiful dark, purple colour. 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, flavours 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.
