Dominating a promontory 62 metres above sea level on the Saint-Émilion limestone plateau on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, the Château Quintus vineyard stretches across a surface area of 28 hectares. Neighbouring some of the most famous châteaux in the appellation, Château Quintus owes its uniqueness to its mosaic of terroirs, soils, slopes and orientations. The vines, which are on average 30 years old, are planted on the plateau, on a succession of south-facing limestone strata, as well as on south-facing clay-limestone and gravel soils to the north of the property.

James Suckling: 95-96/100

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 95/100
The 2023 Quintus is a rich, racy Grand Vin. Ample and resonant, the 2023 offers up copious dark-toned fruit, cedar, mint, tobacco, incense and French oak. There’s tons of power and breadth but also more freshness than the early vintages, even if the oak is a touch present today. 

Jane Anson: 94/100
Brambled fruit, richly textured, with juice that runs through the palate bringing you into the heart of St Emilion. Push and pull in texture between grilled smoky oak and slate-scraping pumice stone tannins, this takes its time to open, well judged and skilfully constructed. 43hl/h yield, 42ha in production since addition of Grand Pontet in 2021. Audrey Bernard joined the technical team in March 2021 direct from Opus One, plus new director Mariette Veyssiere.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The Wine Independent: 92-94/100
The 2023 Quintus is deep garnet-purple in color. It opens with notes of fresh crunchy black plums, wild blueberries, and cedar giving way to suggestions of wild sage, pencil shavings, and Sichuan pepper. The full-bodied palate has lovely tension and fine-grained tannins supporting the bright black fruit flavors, finishing on a minerally note. This is a very pretty Quintus, though slightly lacking in mid-palate, layers, and substance. The blend is 78.3% Merlot and 21.7% Cabernet Franc, with pH 3.61 and 38% new oak.
