Description: Wa 93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017 The 2014 Enclos Tourmaline, a new kid on the Pomerol block courtesy of Peter Kwok, comes from a single-hectare parcel of Merlot located slap-bang opposite Château Clinet. It has a refined bouquet with ebullient red cherry. The 2014 Enclos Tourmaline, a new kid on the Pomerol block courtesy of Peter Kwok, comes from a single-hectare parcel of Merlot located slap-bang opposite Château Clinet. It has a refined bouquet with ebullient red cherry and crushed strawberry scents laced with black truffle and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, precise with a crescendo of black fruit towards the finish that has great persistence. This has outstanding potential. - Neal Martin JS 93 jamessuckling.com, February 2017 Love the ripe-berry, chocolate and bay-leaf aromas that follow through to a full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Delicious and juicy. Needs time to soften but so good. Jd 92 jebdunnuck.com, November 2017 The 2014 Enclos Tourmaline is 100% Merlot from a tiny parcel in Peter Kwok's property located on the plateau of Pomerol, between Chateau Clinet and Chateau Feytit-Clinet. This beauty is a terrific success in the vintage. The 2014 Enclos Tourmaline is 100% Merlot from a tiny parcel in Peter Kwok's property located on the plateau of Pomerol, between Chateau Clinet and Chateau Feytit-Clinet. This beauty is a terrific success in the vintage and offers more texture, richness and depth than most. Black cherries, currants, smoke, acacia flowers, and damp earth nuances all emerge from this ripe, gamey, layered, medium to full-bodied Pomerol that has character as well as elegance. It's already drinking nicely, yet will keep for 15-20 years. Jl 92 TheWineCellarInsider.com, March 2017 From 100% Merlot, the wine is showing a sensuous, velvet character, with earthy plums, truffle and minerality to complicate matters. You can drink this young, while waiting for the gorgeous 2015 and 2016 to come around.

Either I did not see the quality of this wine in barrel, or it truly blossomed in bottle. Either way, as you can see, my score has clearly jumped as the is just showing great today!
