    The Precision of a Delicious and Refined Grand Cru Classe from Saint-Emilion

    With its exceptional terroir located in the heart of Libourne, the Grand Cru Classe Chateau Quinault l’Enclos is one of the most interesting references of the Saint-Emilion appellation, on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region.

    Acquired by the shareholders of the iconic Cheval Blanc in 2008, Chateau Quinault l'Enclos benefited from the expertise of experienced technical teams and a restructuring of its vineyard that allowed it to reveal the quality and the complexity of this fine terroir. Grown and vinified with the same philosophy as Cheval Blanc, the great wine of Chateau Quinault l'Enclos is aged exclusively in barrels of 500 liters, 50% of which are new.

    Spared by the episodes of frost at the end of April 2017, the Chateau Quinault l'Enclos vineyard enjoyed the conditions favorable for the development of a great Saint-Emilion wine.

    Made from a blend of Merlot (62%) with a slightly higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon than in previous vintages (22%) supplemented by Cabernet Franc (16%), the Chateau Quinault l'Enclos 2017 is very expressive and fresh. The aromatic bouquet displays this unmistakable style, highlighting sparkling blackcurrant notes and a beautifully spicy touch, framed by the delicate floral aromas. The palate is delicious, revealing a worn-in texture without the mid-palate losing its depth and softness. The wine is balanced by a beautiful tension that stretches into a long and lingering finish. A superbly delicate, precise and generous Saint-Emilion, whose fantastic aging potential is a testament to the talent of the Cheval Blanc team.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    There was no frost here. Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Quinault l'Enclos delivers expressive scents of mulberries, baked plums and boysenberries with hints of tar, licorice and chargrill. Medium-bodied, the palate has a solid structure of chewy tannins and lively acidity framing the elegant black fruit and savory layers, finishing on an earthy note.
