En Primeur Dragons de Quintus will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Château Quintus was purchased by Domaine Clarence Dillon in 2011. Domaine Clarence Dillon named its new property after the Gallo-Roman tradition of naming their fifth child Quintus. For almost a century, the Bordeaux reference book Cocks and Feret mentioned the property as a First Growth of Saint-Emilion. The property also received a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle de Paris in 1867.
The property is located on a high promontory which is the end of the plateau of Saint-Emilion. It is planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Thanks to the excellent vinification practices undertaken at this estate, the wine produced here reflects great body and ripeness Since the purchase of the estate, Domaine Clarence Dillon implemented some improvements such as sorting of the grapes during the harvest, in-depth research for a new style of wine during the blending process.
Château Quintus is the grand vin. 2011 is the first vintage entirely produced by Domaine Clarence Dillon. Le Dragon de Quintus is the second wine. It is a blend of 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc.
