Average critic rating : 93.33 points



The 2015 Enclos Tourmaline is a 100% old-vine Merlot that emerges from the heart of Peter Kwok's La Patache property in Pomerol. There is no shortage of depth or intensity, yet the 2015 comes across as a bit rough around the edges and also stylistically forced into trying to be something it might not be able to be. Hints of mocha, espresso, black stone fruits and licorice open into the finish. This is a heavily extracted style. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com



The 2015 L'Enclos Tourmaline comes from a one-hectare parcel directly opposite Clinet and owned by Peter Kwok, part of what appears to be his expanding "empire" on the Right Bank. Readers should be aware that this particular vintage includes a new parcel that is close to La Fleur Petrus. Pure Merlot, it has a seductive bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and a touch of truffle that is very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, intense but not powerful, fine mineralité with subtle black pepper and truffle notes on the long finish. I can see this ageing well, though I want to see more personality articulated once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2040



This is fabulous with superb concentration of ultra-fine and ripe and bright fruit. Walnuts, blackberry, black truffles and wet earth. Full body. Powerful finish. Amazing tiny production wine in the heart of Pomerol. 1 hectare. 3,000 bottles. 100% Merlot. A wine to compete with Le Pin. Watch this estate! Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com
