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 :
The 2016 Quinault l'Enclos is a blend of 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 68% Merlot, continuing the team's program of increasing the proportion of Cabernet, picked from 20 September and finishing on 7 October. It is matured in 50% new oak (500-liter barrels) and one-year-old barrels. It has a very pure bouquet with macerated black cherries, a touch of blueberry, a subtle flinty note just tucked underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry. This feels very fresh and lively in the mouth, perhaps a little more compact than others I tasted, although that is probably because it had been taken from barrel less than an hour before my visit. It is very precise on the brisk, punctual graphite-tinged finish, an almost clinical Quinault l'Enclos that will benefit from five or six year aging in bottle.
