External Reviews for Quinault l'Enclos
2010: The 2010 sports a new label, since Quinault L'Enclos was purchased from Alain Raynaud and his wife by the owners of Cheval Blanc.

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Quinault l'Enclos 750ml
70% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, 10% cabernet sauvignon. Planted to sandy gravels. Purchased by Cheval Blanc a couple of years ago. There is some fading at the pale pink rim. The nose is somewhat closed at the moment. Maybe lacking a bit of ambition, ... Chuck Hayward. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Quinault l'Enclos 6000ml
Ganz tief und fein in der Nase, sehr delikat, süß, schokoladig, mit stilvoller, reifer Frucht, finessenreich, komplex und duftig. Im Gaumen zeigt er eine saftig-feine Struktur, cremige Tannine, sehr luftig und elegant, lang und präzise. Ein reizvoller, vielschichtiger St.-Emilion.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Quinault l'Enclos 375ml
The style here has changed completely since it was purchased from Dr. Alain Raynaud by the owners of Cheval Blanc. The 2009, a blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc from this enclosed vineyard situated within the town of Libourne, displays loads of blueberry and raspberry fruit along with crushed rock and a host of floral notes. Deliciously fruity, medium-bodied, and very elegant, with a nice succulence, this is not a big wine by any means, but it is very stylish, pure, velvety textured and precocious. Drink it over the next 10andndash;15 years.
This is very distinctive, with live-wire acidity running through the core of damson plum, linzer torte and blackberry fruit that's framed by a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note. The long and driven finish has a piercing iron edge and a smoldering tobacco note that adds to the dramatic profile. Best from 2015 through 2025.
