The estate is surrounded by the suburbs of the city of Libourne and this wine is produced by the team at Château Cheval Blanc. That combination has produced a sequence of fine wines, like this release. Rich fruits have been given a sheen of wood aging and crafted tannins to make a wine that will age well. Drink from 2026.

Coming from a walled vineyard near the town of Libourne, the 2018 Château Quinault L'Enclos reveals a dense ruby/purple color to go with lots of earthy red and black currant fruits, truffle, leather, camphor, and bouquet garni-like nuances. Rich, full-bodied, and beautifully textured, it needs plenty of air to show at its best, so don't be afraid to give bottles a healthy decant if drinking any time soon. It should have two decades of overall longevity.

The 2018 Quinault L'Enclos is so impressive. Bright and delineated, the 2018 pulses with energy from start to finish. The aromatics alone are just captivating, with floral and savory notes that soar out of the glass. Lavender, sage, menthol, licorice, crushed rocks and plum all build as the 2018 shows off its considerable allure. The 2018 is such a gorgeous wine.

Bright savory and bay leaf notes lead off, followed by lightly dried red currant and red cherry fruit flavors. Ends with a swath of cedar on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2026.
