TASTING NOTES:

 
Wine Rating: RP 94 points
Drink by: 2020 - 2039 

A blend of 69% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon aged exclusively in 500-liter barrels, 50% new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Quinault l'Enclos opens with expressive black cherries, red currants and black raspberries notes with hints of baking spices, cigar box and bay leaves plus a waft of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with vibrant red and black fruits, supported by finely grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and spicy.


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.
