Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 90 (Dec. 2018)

Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 le Dragon de Quintus leaps from the glass with bold blackberry preserves, stewed plums and wild blueberry scents plus suggestions of new leather, menthol and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and blue fruit preserves with a velvety frame and lovely spicy sparks on the finish.

Vinous - Score: 89 (Jan. 2019)

The 2016 Le Dragon de Quintus has a perfumed, floral bouquet of red fruit infused with pressed rose petals; kirsch and orange blossom emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. A little pinched on the entry, and quite peppery, with gentle grip toward the tinny finish. Give this a couple of years to shave off those edges.
