CHATEAU QUINAULT L' ENCLOS

Quinault L’Enclos was originally bought back to life by Alain Reynaud (former president of the Union des Grands Crus) who purchased it in 1997, saving it from a new housing development.

Its history is largely unknown, but the estate is thought to have originated in the 17th Century. The vines on Quinault L’Enclos are actually some of the oldest in Saint-Émilion, and many are close to 50 years old. The vineyard itself is walled, and situated on gravel, sand and clay soils planted in 83% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Reynaud produced a sweet, forward, supple style that would drink well in the first 10-15 years. In 2008, the property was sold to Bernard Arnault and Albert Frère (owners of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), who also own Château Cheval Blanc and Château d’Yquem. With the change in ownership came a change of style, the wines now offering more purity, less oak treatment and increased aging potential.
