The roundness and gourmandise of a great wine from Saint-Émilion

The estate
Château Quinault l’Enclos is located on the right bank of Bordeaux in the Saint-Émilion appellation. Belonging to the famous Premier Grand Cru Classé A of Saint-Emilion Château Cheval Blanc, the wines of Château Quinault I'Enclos benefit from the same care as those of Château Cheval Blanc.

The vineyard
The Château Quinault l'Enclos vineyard covers 19 hectares of vines. It is located near the Dordogne River, in the Saint-Emilion appellation.

The vintage
Budding was relatively early after a mild winter. Flowering was not affected by the first rainy period of June. A hot and dry period followed, leading to rapid and early ripening.

The winemaking
Harvest from September 11 to September 27. Vinification carried out by the Cheval Blanc team. Plot vinification. Native yeasts. Gentle extraction. Long maceration. Manual pumping over and malolactic fermentation in tanks.

The ageing
12 months of ageing with quarterly rackings. Aging in 500-litre barrels (of which some new oak (40%), some oak of one previous wine (40%)) as well as in casks (20%).

The blend
Merlot (74%), cabernet sauvignon (14%), cabernet franc (6%).

The tasting
Displaying a deep red colour in the glass, the Château Quinault L’Enclos 2019 charms the eyes with its clear and bright appearance. The nose is gourmand, combining notes of red and black fruit with pastry notes of vanilla, caramel and coffee. The attack is smooth, full-bodied, delicious and rich with a beautiful tannic grain resulting in a tender and creamy mid-palate. Resolutely seductive, the Château Quinault L’Enclos 2019 is a well-rounded and fleshy wine with a nice, palate-coating finish.
