Château Quinault l'Enclos Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"An elegant, pretty Quinault, the 2004 displays a dense ruby/purple color along with a big, rich nose of licorice, black raspberries, cherries, and spice. This blend of 71% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec possesses an excellent texture, beautiful elegance and complexity, and no hard edges. A seamlessly made, supple-textured, evolved, forward effort, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. This is a very strong effort in a challenging vintage…91" WA 6/07"The 2004 Quinault l’Enclos (77% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec) is impeccably clean, pure, and rich. Its dense blue/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful perfume of blueberries, acacia flowers, raspberries, and crushed rocks. Reeking of terroir, it offers elegant, medium-bodied, pure, textured, layered flavors, sweet but high tannin, admirable weight and equilibrium, and a long finish. Cellar it for 3-5 years and enjoy it over the following two decades….91-93" WA 6/06.
