About Chateau Quinault l'Enclos:

Located in the heart of Libourne, this chateau has a history dating back to the Roman Era. Today, the average age of the vineyard is 45 years old, with the oldest vines in production since 1934. The age of the vines lends to a very interesting genetic heritage and highly complex grapes. In the winery, this translates to terrior driven wines with great character.
