Regular price ₱4,095

TASTING NOTES:

 
Wine Rating: RP 88 points
Drink by: 2015 - 2025 

This property, discovered and resurrected by Dr. Alain Raynaud, was acquired by Château Cheval Blanc and with a few refinements as well as a label change, the quality of the terroir (within the city limits of Libourne) continues to impress. Richly fruity, spicy and earthy, with attractive black cherry and currant fruit, this medium-bodied wine has soft tannins and seems ideal for drinking over the next 7-10 years.


Château Quinault L’Enclos was not always considered a part of the St. Emilion appellation. Until 1973, the vineyard of Château Quinault L’Enclos was actually part of the satellite appellation of Sables St. Emilion. The Château was renovated and parts of the vineyard were replanted by Alain Raynaud who acquired it in 1997. Another change made by Alain Raynaud was a move from mechanical harvesting to picking by hand. 

In 2008 Alain Raynaud sold Château Quinault L’Enclos to the owners of Château Cheval Blanc, Bernard Arnault and Albert Frere. Today, Pierre Lurton and his talented team from Cheval Blanc now manage the estate. After the purchase, the estate switched to organic farming in 2009 and earned its certification for being completely organic in 2012.
