Chateau Quinault L'Enclos St. Emilion 2014
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau Quinault L'Enclos|
The wine from this estate within the city of Libourne is packed with the most delicious Merlot. Ripe, layered with acidity and with intense red fruits, it is a rich red. Red currant and red-berry flavors dominate this generous full-bodied wine. Drink from 2022.
The 2014 Quinault l'Enclos, which was the first vintage to utilize larger 500-liter barrels and also the first to utilize the newly planted Cabernet Sauvignon to lend structure. Now in bottle, this Saint Emilion has an attractive bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, predominantly raspberry preserve and a touch of loganberries. The oak here is neatly folded into the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin on the entry. Although the Cabernet Sauvignon does lend more backbone, I was quite surprised how approachable this Quinault l'Enclos is, partly because of the growing season. It is certainly harmonious, without enormous depth or grip, the dash of black pepper on the finish a pleasing way to finish off.
Fresh, if a bit on the lighter side. Light incense and black tea details lead into gentle-edged raspberry and damson plum coulis flavors. The silky finish picks up light mint and savory hints. Drink now through 2024. 3,500 cases made.
