(94 - 96) Composed of 72.3% Merlot and 27.7% Cabernet Franc, harvested September 20 to October 8, the 2018 Quintus is deep purple-black in color and rolls sensuously out of the glass with very pure, perfumed notes of lilacs, lavender, plum preserves and chocolate-covered cherries giving way to notes of spice cake, cardamom, fenugreek and fragrant soil plus a touch of unsmoked cigars. The full, rich, seductive palate provides layer upon layer of perfumed black fruits and spicy nuances with a firm yet soft frame and oodles of freshness to lift the long finish. Beautifully done.- LPG

Dark garnet in color, the wine is sensuality and elegance. More unctuous than usual, the velvet textured black plums that coat your palate really hang in there. Even though the wine reached 15.2% alcohol, there is only a slight touch of heat in the finish but there is no sensation of jamminess. The wine was made using 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc harvested from September 20-October 8. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Quintus

(93-94) This is very reserved with blueberry, cedar and shaved-chocolate character. Medium to full body and firm, lightly chewy tannins that are polished and pretty. Energetic finish at the end.

This is very St-Emilion in its luxury and silkiness, with a beautiful texture and great persistency. It's a highly successful and seductive wine, and 2018 is the eighth vintage under the Haut-Brion banner. It has a beautiful nose showing extremely high quality fruit, combining precision and flesh in the notes of blackberry, dark chocolate, choux bun and liquorice, while touches of violets and peonies help lift the nose. Just a touch of heat through the finish. Harvested 20 September to 8 October. Just 4% press wine used, as it's a particularly tannic year for press wines. 3.62pH.
