Absolutely banging. Fruity and layered. Notes of fresh strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb and a hint of vanilla. A slightly sweet but not cloying finish. Need more. — 4 months ago
Exotic fruits, pineapple, passion fruit. On the grassy side, hay, peach in syrup, apricot... superbly in place for this 2015 with a potential for evolution over the next 25 years, potential evolution towards notes of dried fruit and nuts. Sweet without saturated sugar. Digestible and light. A real wine in the refined sense of the term. Magnificent on a Roquefort cheese.

Typically shy Vermentino on the nose with Mediterranean herbs but everything but on the palate. Taut & clean with great tension between the shy fruit & herbs and the beautiful mineral salinity. Great caracter and sense of place and at 12% alc this is such sheer drinking pleasure. A brilliant white! — 3 years ago
Good but overpriced Brunello. This Brunello is just too strong for most food. It went well with Roquefort but likely nothing else. The finish is very peppery. The attack is very strong and inelegant. — a year ago
My ‘ house’ wine shared w friends & paired with baked Cod & Roquefort sauce, roasted vegetables, & barley. Pretty in color & on the palate: rusted rose hips, some distant forest floor. Medium plus acidity but enough to cut through the Roquefort sauce, & low enough tannins to not spar with the cod. — 2 years ago

Info I found on the dark web as follows,
This property possesses 16 hectares of vines (60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc) and was purchased in 1978 by Comte Léo de Malet Roquefort, the owner of Château La Gaffelière. In June 2011 it was acquired by the Clarence Dillon group, which also owns Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. Its new owner decided to rename the property, starting with the 2011 vintage. Château Tertre Daugay, the fifth cru classé to be acquired by the Clarence Dillon group, became Château Quintus.The property is located on a high promontory that forms the edge of the Saint Emilion plateau. It commands a panoramic view far into the distance of the surrounding villages and the Dordogne Valley. It is here that, since time immemorial, a watchtower has stood to guard the village of Saint Emilion. The exceptional microclimate is due to the area's diversity in terms of soil, slopes and orientation. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that in 1844 and 1848 the wine was among the 14 most sought-after and expensive in Saint Emilion. For nearly a century, Bordeaux et ses Vins, the standard reference work produced by Cocks and Féret, listed the property as a Saint Emilion Premier Cru. The property was also one of the prestigious vineyards in Saint Emilion to win a gold medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1867. — a year ago
Typical CdR blend of Grenache, Syrah & Carignan with a dash of Cinsault, gives the typical fruit forward flavors (raspberries, blackberries, plums) yet in a very light, airy & crunchy manner - more of a gothic cathedral than a baroque palace.
On the palate this is also airy & light, with fresh crunchy fruit (Black fruit again, with a touch of olive), good quality, juicy tannins and a mineral backbone. Weightless almost, and this despite 14.5% alc!
