Such a beautiful and complex nose of rose petals, dark fruit and sandalwood. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful. A precise linear edge to this runs through the wine. Very fine tannins. Yet this is so powerful. Love it... Such a beautiful and complex nose of rose petals, dark fruit and sandalwood. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful. A precise linear edge to this runs through the wine. Very fine tannins. Yet this is so powerful. Love it. Drink in 2022 and forward.

Medium-bodied, it sports very finely-grained, plush tannins and remains seamlessly refreshing and elegant in the mouth with a seductively nuanced flavor profile, culminating with wonderful length and depth. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Better in the bottle than it was in barrel, which is the sign of all great wines, this is all about its purity of fruit, silky tannins and elegant character. There is not a hard edge to be found, The wine shows a beautiful purity of fruit, coupled with salty tannins and lift. This should drink well for at least the next 20 years or longer. Even though the wine is 15.2%, there is no touch of heat. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2015+Quintus+

The top cuvee is the 2015 Château Quintus, and it’s a sensationally concentrated, textured beauty loaded with character. Toasty oak, chocolate, blackcurrants, and licorice all emerge from this full-bodied Saint-Emilion... The top cuvee is the 2015 Château Quintus, and it’s a sensationally concentrated, textured beauty loaded with character. Toasty oak, chocolate, blackcurrants, and licorice all emerge from this full-bodied Saint-Emilion and it has a terrific mid-palate, fine tannin and the balance and depth to keep for two decades.

The 2015 Quintus offers attractive blackberry, briary and cedar aromas on the nose but it lacks the definition and complexity of some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity... The 2015 Quintus offers attractive blackberry, briary and cedar aromas on the nose but it lacks the definition and complexity of some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, quite smooth in the mouth with a joyful, vivid, savory finish. This is a delightful Saint-Émilion. Enjoy this over the next 10 to 12 years. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin

Wine Enthusiast, April 2018
Dark and dense, this wine has good aging potential, with black fruits as well as a dry core of tannins. Minerality shows through in the texture of the wine. It is rich and generous, reflecting the vintage. Drink from 2024.

Decanter,
The best yet from this newly created, Haut-Brion-owned estate (first vintage 2011). Full and fragrant with plenty of depth. Smooth, fresh and well defined, the palate showing greater precision.

Rich and concentrated, with a wave of ganache out front, followed by warmed plum, fig and blackberry confiture flavors. Shows hints of loam and chalk through the finish, with good integration. Best from 2020 through 2030... Rich and concentrated, with a wave of ganache out front, followed by warmed plum, fig and blackberry confiture flavors.
