PRODUCT REVIEWS

A 2006 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé, fully mature and perfect for drinking this Christmas or for the next two years. We have secured a small parcel at a good price, in fact a very good price indeed it normally sells for over £40 and we are able to offer it at £32.95 a bottle, £197.70 for six, delivered.

The walled or 'en clos' vineyards at Château Quinault L'Enclos were planted some 200 years ago and this produces a wine of extraordinary character and depth. The 2006 is also one of the last vintages made with the pioneering Alan Raynaud as the owner of the property. A couple of years later, so good was the wine and the potential at Quinault that the owners of Moët, Hennessy and Louis Vuitton made him an offer that he couldn't refuse, and so Quinault is now part of the Cheval Blanc and Yquem stable and has arguably lost a bit of the Alain Raynaud magic.

Critic's Review:
"An extraordinarily elegant Quinault with remarkable purity and texture has been produced in 2006. This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, and enjoys every state-of-the-art winemaking technique, most of them Burgundy-inspired (especially the cold pre-fermentation maceration, malolactic in barrel, and aging on its lees with plenty of batonnage). A top-notch success for proprietor Alain Raynaud and his wife, Francoise, this deep ruby/purple-colored effort exhibits sweet aromas of spring flowers, blueberries, and raspberries. Medium-bodied and layered, with attractive sweetness, ripe tannin, a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, and alcohol, and a long finish...."
