The 2019 Enclos Tourmaline offers up aromas of plums, wild berries, sweet spices, loamy soil and creamy new oak. Full-bodied, ample and succulent, it’s elegantly muscular, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and powdery tannins. Derived from holdings on the plateau respectively located between Le Pin and Trotanoy, opposite Clinet, and opposite the chateau of La Fleur-Petrus, this is the most serious Pomerol in Peter Kwok’s portfolio.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2050
The 2019 Enclos Tourmaline is a heady, explosive wine. Vinification in barrel seems to have amplified flavors and textures. Plush dark cherry, espresso, licorice, dark spice, menthol and leather build a sumptuous, exotic Pomerol that hits all the right notes. Tasted two times.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2039
