2019 Chateau Quintus Saint Emilion
Winemaker Notes: The success of a vintage depends on its holistic nature. While it’s not uncommon to achieve sublime merlots, which is the case for the 2019 vintage, the cabernet franc also hit a high note. In 2019, our magnificent cabernet franc is on par with the merlot and represents nearly 45% of the final blend. 2019 marks the ninth vintage of Château Quintus, and it is undoubtedly one of the best to date. Don’t miss out on the Château Quintus 2019.
Blend: 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2019 Château Quintus is brilliant and does everything right in the vintage. Loaded with ripe red and black cherry fruits as well as notes of white truffle, leafy herbs, baking spices, and tobacco, it hits the palate with a stunningly balanced, full-bodied profile delivering gorgeous tannins, the purity and freshness of the vintage, and a great finish. Coming from the Dillon team, this is Saint-Emilion brilliance that's already approachable yet will cruise for another 20-25 years. Bravo. Best After 2022"
James Suckling - "This is very spicy, with tile and terra cotta to the dark-fruit aromas. Pine and cedar, too. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a creamy finish. Very fine and long. Need three or four years to come together. 55% merlot and 45% cabernet. Best after 2024."
Decanter - "One of highest levels of Cabernet Franc since Haut-Brion arrived at the estate, and it makes its mark in all the right places. A gorgeous sculpted feel, with grip and personality, charcoal slate character, minerality and sappy fruit. White pepper spice, austerity and grip, very much a sign of how good this grape can be in St Emilion. Barrel Sample: 95"
