Tasting Note:

The Cheval Blanc winemaking team has made real progress at Quinault L'Enclos. 2018 is the tenth vintage and definitely their most accomplished effort to date. 50% of the vineyard has been replanted using massale selections from Cheval Blanc and new Cabernet Sauvignon clones. Produced from 71.5% Merlot, 14.5% Cabernet Franc and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in a mixture 500L barrels and foudres. Plenty of wine here. Notes of soy and nori, flowers, red berries and salt, then plums, spice and Valrhona chocolate - this is impressive and concentrated yet has verve and lift. The finish has lovely salinity with notes of sweet toasty oak, wild plums and flowers. Silky, refined and pure, this is a tremendous effort from Quinault.
