Description

A delicate and aromatic Saint-Émilion wine

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-Émilion 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-Émilion appellation.

The vintage

The start of 2020 was marked by dry conditions favouring an early budding of the vines. The month of March began with heavy rainfall before a period of warm temperatures, prompting the rapid start of the vegetative cycle. The strong pressure of blight at the beginning of the vegetative cycle was gradually neutralised by hot and dry climatic conditions. While the months of April, May and June were temperate and rainy, summer conditions were extremely dry with very high temperatures, causing significant water stress. A rainy episode during the week of August 15 was beneficial for the vineyard. 2020 remains one of the warmest years on record since 1994. The harvest was consistent, yielding fruit of high quality.

The blend

The Château Quinault l´Enclos 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (78%) and Cabernet Franc (22%).

The tasting

Colour

The wine displays subtle purplish reflections.

Nose

The nose combines, with the freshness of liquorice, delicate fragrances of ripe black fruit with balsamic and tobacco notes.

Palate

Full-bodied and fruity, the attack extends to a delicious mid-palate. The delicate tannins tighten gradually, firming up a rich and delicious texture.
