1999 Chateau Quinault L'Enclos, St.-Emilion Grand Cru -- unyielding dark purple, almost black, in colour, but giving off some nice aromatics of berries, cotton candy, vanilla, and charcoal smoke after 30 min. in decanter; completely mouth-filling, seems fairly heavy (though a reasonable 13.5% alc) but quite velvety, loaded with rich, ripe blueberry and dark plum flavours; we almost didn't notice the everpresent tannins under the weight of all that fruit on the long finish. A great accompaniment to rare tenderloin, and obviously a wine with a long future. About 91-92 pts. today. Really delicious, and easy to drink too quickly.
