A Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé on the right bank of Bordeaux, Château Quinault L’Enclos enjoys a beautiful location, near the city of Libourne.
The estate expands over a 19-hectare vineyard planted on a fantastic terroir. For ten years, Château Quinault L'Enclos has been led by the team of the prestigious Château Cheval Blanc.
A vintage of challenges marked by strong climatic contrasts, 2018 will nevertheless be remembered as a great year at the property. The heavy rains of the beginning of the year generated significant mildew pressure. But the precision and attention paid to the vines by the technical teams of the property saved Château Quinault L’Enclos from mildew. The beautiful summer that settled in July, followed by an ideal September, allowed for a perfect ripening of the fruit, which showed a fantastic concentration.
Blending Merlot (71.5%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14.5%) and Cabernet Franc (14.5%), the Château Quinault L'Enclos 2018 expresses the grandeur of the terroir of Saint-Émilion, where it was born.
An intensely expressive and fruity aromatic bouquet reveals beautiful black fruit notes with blackberry and cherry, evolving spicy and peppery notes, punctuated with delicate floral fragrances. On the palate, the wine shows great precision and a straightforward quality. Unctuous and generous, the wine displays a wide, rich texture, balanced by a lively acidity. The wine persists for a long time on the finish, while preserving a crunchy, juicy fruitiness. A beautiful vintage of Quinault L'Enclos, accessible in its youth but also promising a wonderful potential for age.
