95-97 VM / 92-93 JS / 91-93 JD / 92DE / 90 JA / 89-91 WI / 88-90 WA

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. - Neal Martin, 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

The 2021 Quinault l'Enclos delivers aromas of cherries, strawberries and warm spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping palate that's supple and charming, with lively acids and a demonstrative, fruit-driven style. Some 80% of the blend is matured in foudres rather than barriques. It's produced by Cheval Blanc's winemaking team. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
