Clarence Dillon – Ch. Quintus and More Tasting

Bear Dalton and Le Dragon de Quintus

On SUNDAY, October 21st at 6pm, please join me in welcoming estate manager François Cap de Mourlin of Chateau Quintus to the Wine School at l’Alliance Française for a tasting of a baker’s (vinter’s?) dozen wines from the Clarence Dillon (Haut Brion, La Mission Haut Brion, Quintus, and Clarendelle) portfolio focusing on the wines of Ch. Quintus.

Ch. Quintus is the Saint Emilion property that Prince Robert of Haut Brion and his team began building in 2011 with the purchase of what used to be called Ch. Tertre Daugay and the addition in 2013 of what used to be called Ch. l’Arrosee. The resulting Quintus estate now provides the grapes for Ch. Quintus and its 2nd vin Le Dragon de Quintus.

For this tasting, we will start with the Clarence Dillon proprietary blend under the Clarendelle label, then taste the three vintages of Le Dragon de Quintus along with on vintage each of the 2nd wine of Ch. Haut Brion (Le Clarence de Haut Brion) and Ch. La Mission Haut Brion (La Chapelle de la Mission) followed by three vintages of Ch. Quintus and finishing with the 2015 Clarté de Haut Brion (the stunning 2nd white wine of both Ch. Haut Brion and Ch. La Mission Haut Brion).
