2012 Le Dragon de Quintus

flagBordeaux / France

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Dragon de Quintus has a simple bouquet: briary, redcurrant and cranberry leaf, a touch of undergrowth coming through but never mustering the vigor one would have expected. The palate is medium-bodied and actually demonstrates more composure and harmony than the aromatics suggest. The tannins are quite fine and it feels silky smooth towards the finish. It is just the nose that lets the side down, but it does seem to improve, albeit developing an almost Chianti-like personality! Tasted January 2016. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com
