Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($58-$63) Deep, bright ruby-red. Captivating aromas of black raspberry, currant, cocoa powder and flinty minerality. Suave and fine-grained, with subtle notes of iron and minerals. Lush and aromatic in the mouth but not at all overly sweet. Finishes with smooth, building tannins. Very distinctive wine.

About This Producer

"This emerging St.-Emilion superstar is run by Alain and Francoise Raynaud who, since their first vintage in 1997, have taken this estate to new heights. No effort is spared here to produce a great wine..." -Robert Parker, Bordeaux

Not only does Quinault deserve interest, but the whole of the St.-Emilion appellation has been enjoying a renaissance with collectors the world over. New ranks of winemakers set on eloquently expressing the pure fruit and lush personalities of the St.-Emilion are being discovered on a very regular basis, and Quinault helps lead the pack. Though Merlot-driven, this chateau also incorporates percentages of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon to produce wines of gorgeous opulence while never sacrificing the impeccable elegance and equilibrium of Bordeaux. The estate also makes a special cuvee called L'Absolut de Quinault that goes through its alcoholic fermentation in barriques.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
