Château Quintus 2018
Château Quintus is located at the southwestern end of the Saint-Emilion plateau. The originality of this exceptional terroir lies in its diversity in terms of soils, slopes and orientation.
The property, which has 28 hectares of vines with an average age of 30 years, extends around a high promontory and enjoys a majestic panorama. The main characteristic of the soil is a succession of limestone strata on all the south-facing slopes of the plateau.
To the north of the property, the limestone is replaced by a mixture of clay and limestone and gravel that plunges southward. Merlot noir represents 66% of the surface in production, cabernet franc 26% and cabernet sauvignon 8%.
The color is dark, intense. The nose, rich and complex, of ripe red and black fruits, is deep. The woodiness only underlines, without dominating, the purity of the fruit. Levin enters the mouth, powerful and delicate at the same time. Then, the structure appears, without aggressiveness, coated and suave. The mid-palate, tasty and fruity, is a gateway to a long and fragrant finish.
