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

59% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Franc. 20 hl/ha (frost and mildew). Cask sample. Forward, fruity and fragrant. Light and round on the palate, the structure delicate but fine. Digeste and for drinking on the fruit. James Lawther MW
The 2021 Quinault l'Enclos has a perfumed nose of cranberry jus, wild strawberry and blood orange, intense but maybe a missing a little complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins on the entry, and quite strict and slightly peppery, leading to an almost Left Bank finish. Fine.
