Dragon de Quintus, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from this prestigous estate in what is well regarded as a fantastic vintage for 'New bordeaux' whilst delivering the class of some of the great vintages of the 80's, 2016 also has a precision and clarity to the wines. Le Dragon de Quintus is 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc. It's expressive, with lots of red cherry and raspberry, vanilla and leather. It's elegant and smooth with fine tannins and a long, spicy finish. This wine will age for another 5 years but is drinking well now.
