The 2015 Quintus wraps around the palate with serious depth and intensity. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate and spices are some of the signatures. Sumptuous, rich and full-bodied, the 2015 is a decidedly big wine, yet it also possesses terrific overall balance for the vintage. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Château Quintus is a blend of 76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Franc picked between 23 September and 9 October, matured in 37% new wood. It has an intense, lifted bouquet of violet-infused blueberry and blackberry fruit, very floral and vivacious. The palate is very well balanced with ripe, supple tannin that carry the pure black cherry and boysenberry fruit effortlessly. The acidity is very well judged and there is great precision towards the finish that leaves a residue of white pepper on the tongue. This is one of the most harmonious and complex Quintus that I have tasted since its debut in 2011, though it deserves 4-6 years in bottle to subsume those tannins.

Crazy aromas of saffron, volcanic salt, hot stone, mushrooms, and wet earth. Then blueberry and blackberry undertones. Full body, super compressed and refined tannins. Powerful. Seamless and endless. 76% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

76% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc. Picked 23 September to 9 October. Made by the new owners, sister property to Haut-Brion. Made up of slopes facing in several different directions, on the extreme west of the plateau with lots of different soil types too. Jean-Philippe Delmas admits that the learning curve has been steep, but 'it's a unique chance to play'. As a result of their various acquisitions, they can choose from two different chais (ex Chx Tertre Daugay and L'Arrosée) with two different sorts of vats - quel luxe! Dark and rich on the nose. Big and bold. A bit more chunky and structured than the Dragon, the second wine named after the 6m-high dragon on the property. Not as charming as the second wine at this stage.

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. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035

Owned by Haut-Brion since 2011, this property is getting better with every vintage. This is a bold, ripe wine, but it’s not over-extracted or figgy. Savoury oak, sweet red fruits, fine tannins and (most important of all) refreshing acidity combine attractively here. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030

Big, bold and juicy, this is a step up from previous vintages of this wine, owned by Haut-Brion. It has ripe tannins and concentration with spice and broad acidity. Black fruits go with the red fruit flavors to give a rich, generous wine. Apr 2016, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
