Proprietor Alain Raynaud has produced a beautifully elegant, noble, racy 2005 Quinault landrsquo;Enclos that ranks alongside his 1998, 2000, and 2001. A blend of 77% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon (the average age of the vines is 50 years), it was cropped at 32 hectoliters per hectare, and receives the Burgundian treatment of malolactic in barrel, aging on its lees for 6andndash;10 months, and no filtering at bottling. The inky/blue/purple-tinged 2005 reveals a pure nose of charcoal, spring flowers, sweet raspberries, black cherries, and cassis. The wine is gorgeously textured, medium-bodied, and elegant yet intensely flavored with a power and texture that build on the palate. The tannin is sweet, but noticeable, and the finish is long. Anticipated maturity: 2010andndash;2030.

The well-known winemaking consultant, Dr. Alain Raynaud, is the proprietor of this estate. The 2005 Quinault landrsquo;Enclos is a pure, elegant, stylish wine from a blend of 70% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and an unusual 6% Malbec. This highly-focused wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, spring flowers, and spice box. With superb concentration, a hint of minerals, and a lovely textured mouthfeel, it should be approachable in 5andndash;6 years, and age easily for two decades or more.

A final blend of 70% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a rare 6% Malbec has resulted in a 2005 Quinault landrsquo;Enclos that rivals what this estate achieved in 2001, 2000, and 1998. This St.-Emilionandrsquo;s upbringing is similar to that of a top red Burgundy, including a 7-day cold soak, fermentation in small tanks, malolactic in barrel, and aging sur-lie with the well-known oxoline system of rotating barrels on wheeled racks, which allows for a type of batonnage without having to open the bung and expose the wine to oxygen. Cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare, it exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue along with beautiful aromas of charcoal, spring flowers, blueberries, raspberries, cassis, and a subtle note of wood. The overall style is one of finesse, elegance, and minerality. Medium to full-bodied and impeccably pure with a beautiful texture as well as 14% natural alcohol, this 2005 will be at its apogee between 2012andndash;2025.

[Barrel tasting] Aromas of blackberry, cherry and chocolate follow through to a medium- to-full body, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Lacks a little bit at the end. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
