Chateau Quinault l'Enclos

The winery is located in the commune of Libourne Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux). The unknown beginnings are suspected in the 17th century. In 1930, the estate was owned by the wine merchant Baptiste Mons, whose son-in-law sold it to Alain Reynaud in the 1990s for an estimated $ 3.4 million. He made extensive investments in improvements under the advice of the well-known oenologist Michel Rolland, Finally, in 2008 the estate was owned by Bernard Arnault (* 1949), the founder of the luxury goods group LVMH and co - owner of Château Cheval Blanc, Then there was a switch to Organic viticulture, The company was first classified as a "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards cover 20 hectares with the varieties Merlot (83%), Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The previously planted variety Cot was removed and the Merlot inventory increased. Some of the vines are over 50 years old. The long-lived red wine is 18 months in 50% new barriques expanded. The second wine is called "Lafleur de Quinault".
