Winemaker Notes

Thanks to the restructuring of the vineyards and the major renovation of the vat room and cellar at Quinault, as well as the meticulous efforts of the Cheval Blanc team, Quinault L'Enclos has affirmed its position as an emerging estate. The 2018 vintage nose displays black fruit aromas of blackberry and cherry, going on to reveal spicy notes such as black pepper and gingerbread, combined with rose and peony overtones. The wine starts out rich and straightforward on the palate, becoming full-bodied and broad-based. It is incredibly smooth and well-balanced thanks to beautiful acidity. The aftertaste is wonderfully long, culminating in a crunchy finish.

94 points Wine Enthusiast

"The estate is surrounded by the suburbs of the city of Libourne and this wine is produced by the team at Chateau 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." 


93 points Wine Advocate

"Quinault l'Enclos comes from off a very gravelly soil with great drainage, but there's not a lot of water during dry periods. Adeptly produced by the team of Cheval Blanc (who purchased the estate in 2008), the wine nonetheless maintained its poise under the dry and warm ripening conditions of 2018, relatively moderate alcohol of 14.1%. The 2018 Quinault l'Enclos has a deep garnet-purple color and beautifully expressed notes of baked black cherries, ripe black plums and boysenberries, plus hints of violets, dark chocolate, star anise and tobacco leaf. The medium-bodied palate has a gorgeous velvety texture and oodles of freshness supporting the perfumed black fruits, finishing long and fragrant. This vintage is a blend of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, aged in 50% new oak and the rest in one-year-old 500-liter barrels and foudres." 


93 points James Suckling

"A juicy red with creamy, polished tannins and attractive blackberry, blackcurrant, wet-earth and bark flavors. Rich finish. Needs time to come together, but already very attractive. Try after 2024."
