Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Wine Cellar Insider "Round, supple and ripe, open, forward, with a sweet, ripe, red cherry licorice, with a slightly dusty quality to the tannins in the finish."
Located in the heart of Libourne, Château Quinault L'Enclos is a city vineyard, whose origins date back to the Gallo-Roman era. This 20 hectare property close to the Dordogne river, benefits from a micro-climate conducive to the cultivation of the vine. These characteristics are represented in the wines which are of excellent quality.
Saint-Émilion Grand Cru wines are produced under slightly tighter production restrictions than regular Saint-Émilion wines. As with other grand cru appellations, the intention behind this is to improve the quality, and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more everyday wines.
