Château Quinault l'Enclos

  • Bordeaux


Surrounded by the commune of Libourne on the Right Bank of the Garonne, the Château Quinault L’Enclos is known as a "town" vineyard, categorised under the name "Saint-Émilion Grand Cru".  Its exceptional soil is composed of sand and pebbles, and a limited quantity of clay. With a low relief, the terroir also enjoys a microclimate, allowing the grapes to reach optimal maturity for each vintage. The vineyard's encepagement more or less represents that of the Right Bank: a majority of Merlot (83%), a part of Cabernet Franc (12%) and a complement of Cabernet-Sauvignon (5%). The Château Quinault L’Enclos belongs to Baron Frère and Bernard Arnault, as does the Premier Cru Classé, Château Cheval Blanc. The two Châteaux benefit from the expertise of Pierre Lurton and his entire team, who provide particular care for the vine. The environmental factor is also very important. The conversion of the Quinault L’Enclos vineyard to organic agriculture began in 2009 and certification was achieved in 2012. Château Quinault L’Enclos is a very fruity and refined wine with particularly soft tannins. Its consistent quality regularly places it alongside the greatest wines of Bordeaux.
