Tasting Notes

Vinous – 86/100

The 2013 Quintus has a slightly stalky nose and moderate definition, with dark berry fruit, tobacco and cola. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. It’s a little dry and lacks some depth on the finish. But it is balanced with no signs of greenness. It’s Pomerol-like in style. Drink now. Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On tasting.

Robert Parker – 88

The 2013 Château Quintus is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has a fragrant bouquet, the Merlot expressive and offering crushed strawberry and cranberry aromas, just a touch of licorice in the background. While it is not an intense Saint Emilion, it is well defined and conveys a sense of charm. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus-fresh opening, slightly chalky tannin, knitted together by a keen thread of acidity and an attractive, vibrant finish. This is a pleasurable, fresh and lively Saint Emilion to enjoy over the next 4-6 years. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

JancisRobinson.com – 16.5

Tasted blind. Mid garnet. Sweet fruited and a little malty, mocha too. Rich in sweet fruit and there’s sweet oak too. Rounded and not very long but harmonious now. Fresh and velvety. There was a suggestion that this bottle had a slight problem with TCA so a second was opened. It did seem marginally juicier and fresher but I think that was more to do with the slightly cooler temperature of the second bottle. (JH)  [27/01/2017]
