Château l'Enclos Réserve de la Marquise Blanc 2006

Member Review by dista23:

This is a stylish, classically structured wine, possessed of expressive aromatics, supple texture and great finesse. Alluring red cherry and truffle notes on the nose lead to vibrant layers of ripe fruit supported by elegant, fine grained tannins that linger on the slightly fruity finish. Grapes were harvested at peek ripeness and sorted by hand in the vineyard and cellar before undergoing 45 days of maceration, with carefully monitored pump overs to extract optimal balance of color, flavor and tannin. The lots were kept separate throughout fermentation in small thermo-regulated vats before being barreled down in 30% new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months of aging. I would drink this again.
