2018 Quintus, Saint Emilion

  • Quintus, Saint Emilion futures

Tasting Note

Bordeaux Futures. Wine currently held in Bordeaux. Estimated arrival in the US: fall 2021. Only available in 6 bottle original wooden cases.

Serena Sutcliffe, MW 
72.3% Merlot, 27.7% Cabernet Franc. 30% of the production went into the grand vin.  A huge, powerful, voluminous, minty nose. Big, inky wine, with glycerol covering the tannins and a coffee/mocha finish.  

Nicholas Jackson, MW
Such purity of fruit!  Very fine boned and elegant with a pure limestone expression. This is the essence of the place. Succulent fruit, yes, but with a firm acid backbone.  Really finely done and will make great old bones in 20 years. 

Adam Bilbey 
More expanse and weight of fruit than I recall from previous vintages. Polished black cherry, plum, mint and spice. Cream and spice coats the glossy black fruit. An orange peel and chocolate edge to the concentrated fruit. Good attack and mid palate guides the powerful finish. Not lacking in power, that's for sure.
