Clarence Dillon, who own Châteaux Haut Brion & La Mission Haut Brion, bought Quintus in 2012 with the aim of turning this spectacular estate high up on the plateau in St Emilion into one of the best in the region - something it is achieving ahead of schedule. This superb second wine is named after a statue of a dragon in the grounds which ‘protects the town of St Emilion’! The wine is, in the words of Neal Martin, “lively and boisterous on the nose with plenty of brambly red fruit, briary and light rose petal aromas”. This will be a very fine drinking wine over the next few years and beyond. Recomended
