Marks and reviews
The estate expands over a 19-hectare vineyard planted on a fantastic terroir. For ten years, Chateau Quinault L'Enclos has been led by the team of the prestigious Chateau Cheval Blanc.
A vintage of challenges marked by strong climatic contrasts, 2018 will nevertheless be remembered as a great year at the property. The heavy rains of the beginning of the year generated significant mildew pressure. But the precision and attention paid to the vines by the technical teams of the property saved Chateau Quinault L’Enclos from mildew. The beautiful summer that settled in July, followed by an ideal September, allowed for a perfect ripening of the fruit, which showed a fantastic concentration.
An intensely expressive and fruity aromatic bouquet reveals beautiful black fruit notes with blackberry and cherry, evolving spicy and peppery notes, punctuated with delicate floral fragrances. On the palate, the wine shows great precision and a straightforward quality. Unctuous and generous, the wine displays a wide, rich texture, balanced by a lively acidity. The wine persists for a long time on the finish, while preserving a crunchy, juicy fruitiness. A beautiful vintage of Quinault L'Enclos, accessible in its youth but also promising a wonderful potential for age.
