Beautiful dark red colour. Initially intense, fruity and refreshing, the nose gains complexity with aeration, revealing discreet hints of oak alongside very ripe black fruit aromas. Starts out fine and elegant on the palate, becoming full-bodied with relatively long and concentrated tannins, accompanied by fruity notes. This Dragon is definitely well-balanced and delicious.
Beautiful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with licorice and tile, following through to a medium to full body with fine tannins and a delicious, creamy finish. So attractive.

The 2019 Dragon de Quintus has turned out nicely, delivering a generous bouquet of rich, plumy fruit and creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's seamless and polished, with its sweet core of fruit framed by ripe tannins and succulent acids, concluding with an expansive finish. As usual, this bottling tends to derive from lower-lying parcels on deeper, sandier soils than those that inform the grand vin.

This fresh and pure version has refined edges, thanks to subtle chalky minerality, with a gentle core of damson plum and dark cherry fruit that glides through easily. Features an incense hint that swirls on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2029.
