From the Critics:

  • "The ever-talented Dr. Alain Raynaud is responsible for this incredible wine. Wonderful structure of acid and tannin frame this muscular red. Plenty of red and purple fruits robe that structure, and great spice and earth tones appear on the finish. This should last for 15+ years. 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Malbec. This is a wine I helped blend and if I was to rate it would rate in this range, of course I am playing fan favorite here ;)

    here is the review to the regular cuvee

    The 2006 Quinault l’Enclos exhibits the elegant style that Raynaud has achieved in every vintage over the last decade. Sweet black raspberry and currant fruit along with hints of spring flowers and smoky oak are followed by a round, gentle, restrained wine revealing outstanding purity, medium body, and a fine finish. While it is not as prodigious as the 2005, it is a strong effort for the vintage. My visit to Chateau Quinault and seeing proprietor Alain Raynaud was tinged with sadness as the world economic climate has forced him to sell Quinault l’Enclos to the owners of Cheval Blanc. Hopefully they will continue to produce wine at this vineyard, which is essentially a true clos (a walled vineyard), but the land is even more valuable as real estate since it is in the city of Libourne, and is surrounded by housing projects. Time will tell, but Raynaud deserves credit for creating a legacy from a terroir that was much maligned when he purchased it, only to prove everyone wrong.- Robert Parker "
