The second wine of Quintus shows so much chili, spice and tile aromas and flavors. Full body, very long finish. Stunning.

The 2015 Le Dragon de Quintus is a blend of 76% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between September 23 and October 9. It has one of the most attractive bouquets that I have tasted since the debut of this deuxième vin: ebullient red cherries mixed with cranberry jus and iodine notes, quite "punchy" compared to other vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite structured with graphite-tinged black and red fruit. The 30% new oak is beautifully integrated here with a long, almost Left Bank-like finish. This is a very well-crafted wine that will drink well for a decade.

There is a soft texture to this wine. Spicy notes are followed by perfumed acidity and gentle tannins. There is a core of dryness that just shapes the acidity and ripe red fruits. The wine will be ready to drink probably from 2019.
