Peter Maude Fine Wines
2020, Château Quintus, SAINT-ÉMILION, Grand Cru
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
Exuberant and confident, with powerful damson and black cherry fruit flavours on the nose. Chocolate and liquorice run through the palate from beginning to end, and this is full of signature St-Emilion glamour. It has a round and supple texture through the mid palate, but the alcohol hides some of the limestone nuance at this point - it will no doubt emerge more clearly with 8 to 10 years in bottle. Harvest 11th September for the Merlot grapes and 23rd September for the Cabernet Franc. 93/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2029 - 2044
