A gorgeous wine in the vintage, the 2021 Château Quinault L'Enclos has loads of black raspberry and ripe currant fruits to go with complex notes of flowers, spice, and spring flowers. It's medium-bodied, has a pure, incredibly elegant mouthfeel, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. The quality here continues to blow me away, and readers need to get this château on their radar.-Jeb Dunnuck

The 2021 Quinault L’Enclos is a potent, savory wine. The Merlot is way down this year and the Cabernets are up, which confers a decidedly savory character. The 2021 was aged in 500- and 600-liter casks, plus 25HL - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Pretty blue fruit with graphite and fine, juicy tannins. Medium-bodied with a fine, silky texture. 59% merlot, 23% cabernet franc and 18% cabernet sauvignon. - James Suckling

From the team at Cheval Blanc, the 2021 Château Quinault L'Enclos is another impeccably made wine that has more red and blue fruits, some violet and peppery herb nuances, medium body, and the precise, focused, elegant style of the vintage front and center. It's finesse-driven, yet still brings texture and richness and will unquestionably be an outstanding wine. - Jeb Dunnuck

Here the warmer soils at Quinault, which can be hard to handle in hot years, helped encourage ripeness. This has a bright clarity to the fruit, waves of graphite, raspberry, loganberry, reserved but juicy in character, and very much in keeping with the new style of Quinault. 50% new oak (500l casks), and then the rest up to 5 years old so neutral oak impact. Long slow harvest, cool maturation, a very different kind of vintage. 20hl/h yield working in 100% organic. Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Composed of 59% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 18% Cabernet Franc, the 2021 Quinault L'Enclos sings of crushed blueberries, blackberries, and raspberry preserves, plus suggestions of dried mint, dark chocolate, underbrush, and cardamom. Medium-bodied, the palate has soft, skillfully managed tannins and plenty of mid-palate black and red fruit flesh, finishing with a minty lift. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

Despite the challenges of the season, the 2021 Quinault l'Enclos has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of sweet cherries, berries, lilac and spices, followed by a medium-bodied, ample and fleshy palate built around velvety tannins and concluding with a pure finish. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
