2015 Enclos Tourmaline, Pomerol

SKU #1370702 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of decadent leaves, dark berries, blueberries and blackberries. Truffle and mushroom undertones. Full-bodied, round and very, very fine and focused. A great wine all around. Tiny production. Approachable now but best in 2022. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a tiny parcel of Merlot vines next to Clinet and made with the help of Michel Rolland, the 2015 Enclos Tourmaline is an elegant, medium to full-bodied effort offering impressive amounts of blackberry, blueberry and cassis fruits, lots of scorched earth and cholate aromas, as well as a distinct floral character. It’s on the palate where this really shines and this ripe, downright sexy beast of a Pomerol maintains a terrific sense of freshness and purity that keeps you coming back to the glass. Count me in as a fan and it should continue to dish out an incredible amount of pleasure for two decades. Tasted twice. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Produced from 100% Merlot that was fermented entirely in French oak barriques, 100% new, and aged for 20 months, the 2015 Enclos Tourmaline is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of crushed blackberries and black cherries with touches of dried herbs, underbrush and cedar plus wafts of menthol, pencil lead and dried lavender. Full-bodied in the mouth with fantastic delineation and sporting wonderful purity, it has concentrated, tightly wound, crunchy black fruit and savory layers and a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long with a perfumed lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A massive, powerful wine, the 2015 Enclos Tourmaline sits on the edge of overripeness, and yet there is just enough balance to keep the wine on course. To be sure, this is an extroverted, flamboyant style. The black cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and leather flavors are all amped up in this sumptuous Saint-Émilion. Enclos Tournaline is 100% old-vine Merlot from the heart of proprietor Peter Kwok's La Patache Pomerol estate. Michel Rolland consults. Tasted two times. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

K&L Notes

The Enclos Tourmaline is made from 100% Merlot grown in two small plots in Pomerol, both just an acre each. One of the vineyards sits in front of Clinet and the other is next to Lafleur-Petrus, giving the wine serious heritage. K&L owner Clyde Beffa says, "Fabulous wine, one of my top wines of the vintage." Extremely limited availability.
