Château Quinault is in the heart of Libourne. The walled 12-hectare vineyard is planted in hot gravelly soil, which raises the temperature in the vineyard a few degrees, resulting in earlier ripening of the grapes. Restored by Doctor Alain Raynaud, these old vines have benefitted from very modern growing and vinification techniques.
Tasting Note: This solid red offers ripe, dark flavors of plum pudding, dark chocolate and iron. The tannins are firm and grippy, but let spice and smoke notes emerge on the finish. Shows good depth and promise.
Rating: 90-92 Points by Robert Parker
