An expressive and vibrant red wine from Saint-Emilion

Situated in the heart of Libourne, Chateau Quinault l'Enclos is a 19 hectare vineyard planted on gravel-based soil. The wine is aged in 500-liter barrels, 50% of which are new. The 2016 vintage is a blend of 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc

Chateau Quinault l'Enclos 2016 is vibrant, with beautiful aromatic expressions early on its maturity. This wine does not lack complexity and is a Saint-Emilion with great aging potential

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This was the first vintage that technical director Pierre-Olivier Clouet started to exclusively use 500-liter barrels for Quinault l'Enclos, decreasing the surface area to which the wines are exposed and, ultimately, the impact of the oak. The percentage of new oak is around 50%, and the blend is 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Quinault l'Enclos opens with expressive redcurrants, black raspberries and black cherries scents with savory suggestions of tapenade, dried herbs and tobacco plus a waft of cloves. Medium-bodied, the palate is fantastically bright and lively with loads of red fruit accents and a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing on an earthy note.
