Tasting Note:

The warming effects of the suburbs gave protection from the frosts. The Cheval Blanc winemaking team has made real progress at Quinault L'Enclos, and 2017 is possibly the most fluid and serene wine to date. Produced from 62% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in a mixture 500L barrels and foudres. The overall impression is of precision, balance and supple, engaging fruit. It isn't particularly complex, but the quality of fruit is very impressive; salty raspberries, cherry and cranberry glide over the palate; this has a silken texture and supple tannins with a mouth-watering acidity. A fluid and delightful wine.
