Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 14,0 %
In 2011, the owners of Ch. Haut Brion (Dom. Clarence Dillon) bought Château Tertre Daugay which is situated on the lime plateau in the south-east of St. Emilion. They renamed the chateau and vinified their first millésime. In October 2013 they also bought the neighbour: Ch. l’Arrosée. Both terroirs were merged and are now sold under the name Ch. Quintus. The name comes from the Latin word ‘fifth’, because it’s the fifth wine they produce (after Ch. Haut Brion red and white and Ch. Mission Haut Brion red and white). The terroir of 28ha contains vines with an average age of 30 years and consists of lime and clay-lime. It is surrounded by 5 great crus from St. Emilion, which proves the exceptional quality. A double selection, also with optical eye, ensures a very clear and ripe harvest. A special bottle with the logo burnt on it (refers to the style of the oldest bottles of Ch. Haut Brion) is used for the bottling.
