Le Dragon is Quintus is the second wine of Château Quintus. 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: 94-95/100
Cedar, tobacco and currant aromas and flavors. Medium body with fine, integrated tannins and a long finish. Lovely acidity to this. Citrus at the end. 71.6% merlot and 28.4% cabernet franc.

Yohan Castaing - Wine Advocate: 90-92/100
The 2023 Dragon de Quintus is a real success this year, revealing aromas of cassis, mulberries, dark wild berries and flowers. Moderately weighted and elegant, the wine on the palate is fleshy, round and seamless with a structuring, long finish. This is a blend of 71.6% Merlot and 28.4% Cabernet Franc.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 90-92/100
The 2023 Le Dragon de Quintus is a gorgeous, vibrant Saint-Émilion. Crushed flowers, red plum, spice, new leather and cedar lend notable energy and brightness. The 2023 is a fine Dragon with plenty of the breadth that is typical here, but in a slightly more restrained style than in past vintages.

Jane Anson: 91/100
Intense depth and character but with freshness, floral character, clear salinity, sappy tannins that are not entirely resolved, but there is good spice and impressive lift. Includes Merlot from the north facing vineyards, and this is sculpted and precise, juicy finish. Director Mariette Veyssiere.
