93-94 JS / 90-92 WI / 90-92 WA / 90-92 WA / 91 DE / 89-91 VM / 90 JA

Very fine tannins with a brightness and freshness. Medium to full body. Vivid and crisp. Chocolate, walnut and berry at the end. 81.6% merlot, 12.1% cabernet franc and 6.3% malbec. - James Suckling

A blend of 81.6% Merlot, 12.1% Cabernet Franc, and 6.3% Malbec, aging in 29.6% new oak, the 2022 Dragon de Quintus has a deep garnet-purple color. It charges out of the gates with powerful notions of plum pudding, fruitcake, and blueberry pie, plus wafts of Morello cherries, spice cake, and hoisin. The big, concentrated, full-on, full-bodied palate is packed with black fruit preserves and exotic spice accents, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

The 2022 Dragon de Quintus displays a perfumed yet elegant bouquet with aromas of spices, plums, cassis and dark berries, followed by a moderately weighted palate that is supple and juicy, with structured tannins but also a slight impression of alcohol on the finish. This is a blend of 81.6% Merlot, 12.1% Cabernet Franc and 6.3% Malbec. - Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate

Floral and nicely scented on the nose, milk chocolate and blackcurrants. Smooth and supple, a nice energy and sense of life to this, with brightness and vibrancy to the sweet strawberry and red cherry fruits also with bite that makes it appealing and moreish. Some tension, it keeps its frame but has a really appealing juice texture and fruitiness. Straight and lean with a heavy dose of spice but appealingly textured with concentrated fruit and underlying strength. Full on and a little bit toasted on the finish. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2022 Le Dragon de Quintus, which includes 6% Malbec (from the acquisition of Grand Pontet), has a floral bouquet with blackberry and blueberry fruit. It just needs to "stretch out" a bit. The palate is mediumbodied with grainy tannins, well balanced, off-dry in style with the 28% new oak neatly integrated. This should age well in bottle. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Heavy spice, juicy black fruits, this is intense and concentrated, with a trace of heat, but plenty of personality. 3.65ph. 28% new oak. Harvest September 7 (their earliest to date) through to September 23. No external consultant. Now with the addition of Château Grand Pontet, great terroir just behind Beauséjour-Becot, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc dating back to 1945. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
