Chateau Quinault L'Enclos St. Emilion Grand Cru

93 Points Wine Advocate: The style here has changed completely since it was purchased from Dr. Alain Raynaud by the owners of Cheval Blanc. The 2007, 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.

The 2007 Quinault l’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 5-6 years, and age easily for two decades or more.

Saint-Emilion is an important wine district in Bordeaux, in terms of both quality and quantity. It is the most prolific of the appellations in the Libournais (the area in the north-east of the Bordeaux region also known as the 'right bank'), and produces some of the most expensive wines in the world. The historic town of Saint-Emilion, which gives its name to several titles, is right at the center of the main appellation, just a few miles north of the Dordogne river. It is renowned as much for its wine as for its beautiful buildings and scenery.

This is a very good to excellent, fruit-forward Bordeaux. Lite tannins with a bit of pepper. Should last for several years and maybe improve a bit. It also has an unmistakable odor and taste of new leather, which may turn some people off. I happen to like it, but highly recommend that the wine be double-decanted and aired a couple hours before first pour. I would rate it 90-91. 93 seems a bit high IMHO.
