Château Quinault sits in the Saint-Émilion appellation of Bordeaux, however it has only been thought of as being in the Saint Émilion appellation since 1973 as previously it was in the satellite of Sables St. Emilion. It produces a wine called Quinault L'Enclos. The vineyards are planted with a majority of Merlot (over 80%) and the rest is Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Alain Raynaud purchased the property with Françoise Raynaud when they discovered that a German Property Management Company was looking to buy the Château. At the time, Alain Raynaud also owned Château La Croix-de-Gay and Château La Fleur-de-Gay and supervised production at Château Lascombes and was named by many in the industry as a "Bordeaux maverick". It was sold to Bernard Arnault and Albert Frère, owners of the celebrated Château Cheval Blanc in 2008. The estate is managed by Pierre Lurton with the same team as Cheval Blanc. In 2009, the estate changed from mechanical to manual farming. The Château has an annual production of around 3,500 cases of wine per year. Château Quinault also produces a second wine called Lafleur de Quinault.
