The Future’s Definitely Not What It Was: Bordeaux 2018 (Mar 2021)

The 2018 Quinault L’Enclos was 10% matured in foudres plus 500-liter barrels. It has certainly retained its precocious bouquet of fig-tinged red berry fruit, crushed violets and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, quite saturated entry and a core of fleshy red fruit. Missing a little complexity, and I find it just a bit cloying on the finish. So-so.
