Château Quinault L'Enclos 2021 - Great Cru Class
This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé sits on a lovely 19-hectare gravelly terroir on the banks of the Dordogne, in the heart of the town of Libourne. For ten years now, it has benefited from the same care as its big brother, Château Cheval Blanc.
The viticultural work, the wine making and the maturation meet the same requirements as its elder brother. The oenological philosophy and viticultural convictions are the same for a great wine that will be open and expressive in its youth, complex and racy when aged in bottle.
Made from a majority of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, Quinault L'Enclos offers fresh and expressive raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, with fine notes of graphite and licorice, all carried by very soft tannins.
