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 medium-bodied with grainy tannins, well balanced, off-dry in style with the 28% new oak neatly integrated. This should age well in bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2040
