Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Le Dragon de Quintus 2014, a blend of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc, already sports an attractive bouquet, nicely defined with touches of blackcurrant winegum and lavender. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly edgy tannins on the entry. Modest weight here, but smooth and harmonious in the mouth with a conservative and slightly saline finish. Enjoy over the next five or six years.
