Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Le Dragon de Quintus comes from vines located on the lower reaches of côte (although from 2015 it contains some located on the plateau). It has retained that slightly floral bouquet that I observed out of barrel, wilted rose petals infusing the red berry fruit, now joined by orange rind and subtle marmalade scents. The palate is medium-bodied with attractive red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, smooth in texture with that orange rind motif returning on the finish.
