Description/ Tasting NotesBeautiful, dark, garnet-red colour. A rich, complex bouquet of red and black fruit while on the palate it is smooth, even creamy, on the palate, with a tight-knit tannic structure. The middle palate is full-bodied, and the finish is delicious and fairly long. This powerful, tasty wine is also very elegant.
Winery Info/ Brand
Quintus has a history that dates back to the earliest days of Saint Emilion and the two estates that now make up the newly formed Château Quintus have in the past enjoyed a similar renown. Both vineyards were cited as Saint-Emilion First Growths between 1868 and 1949 (Cocks et Féret) and were also among the finest estates to earn the Gold Medal for Saint-Emilion in the Exposition Universelle de Paris of 1867. Quintus has an exceptional biodiversity that will be maintained and encouraged, including an oak wood, a copse of poplar trees and acacias, and a willow grove in the beautiful park that surrounds the main house.
Region Info/ Origin
Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
