2005 l'Enclos, Pomerol

SKU #1038810

According to the Wine Spectator: "Fresh aromas of crushed blackberry. Medium-bodied, with lovely silky tannins and a medium finish. Friendly wine." (Web only, 2008) According to Robert Parker: "The 2005 is a seductive, lush, fruity, up-front wine meant to be consumed in its first 10 years of life. Its ruby/plum-tinged color is accompanied by notes of sweet cherries, damp earth, fresh mushrooms, and a hint of mocha." (04/08) K&L's Notes: This is a superb wine from Pomerol.

A superb wine from Pomerol, and cheap!

Clyde went deep on this wine and I can see why. He's moving more towards the Right Bank these days and this wine helps me to understand his reasoning. It is soft as velvet, but not ripe, rich and smooth - simply gentle. It glides effortlessly over the tongue with subtle notes of red fruit. I'm going to bring this to a dinner of wine snobs who say they don't drink Merlot and watch their faces light up.

This is not a wine that will bowl you over with sheer size or weight, but rather one that will charm you with gentle, seductive elegance. The woodsy aromas are delicate, beguiling and strictly Old School. There is sweet fruit finely laced with mineral and a sense of harmony that satisfies on an intellectual level, yet doesn’t short change the palate. This is beautiful, sensual, classic claret to contemplate and enjoy over the next decade.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
