Château Quintus Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2012

Château Quintus Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is an assemblage of Merlot (89%) and Cabernet Franc (11%). The wine has a tightly-knit tannic texture and a beautiful, long, aromatic aftertaste. It is fruity, spicy and oaky (the oakiness is normal at this early stage). 2012 Quintus starts out quite smooth on the palate, going on to show ripe fruit and a freshness that might be referred to as mineral which is very typical of the terroir. Made from a very small crop, it has the potential to become a great Saint-Émilion.
