    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. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

    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. - James Suckling

    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. - Jane Anson, Decanter

    The 2018 Quintus is dark, powerful and super-concentrated, with a real sense of textural breadth and amplitude. Dark fruit, chocolate, spice, new leather and licorice add to a feeling of power and gravitas. The 2018 is an especially somber, brooding Quintus. The 15.2% alcohol is at the upper end for 2018 and is very much felt in the wine. Here, too, I am quite interested to see how things turn out after élevage.- Antonio Galloni
