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.

The 2014 Enclos Tourmaline Merlot, produced by Enclos Tourmaline, hails from the esteemed Pomerol region of Bordeaux, France. This red wine, sealed with a traditional cork and boasting an alcohol content of 14%, has garnered notable attention from several prominent wine reviewers.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, with Neal Martin at the helm, awarded this wine a commendable score of 93. Martin describes it as having "a refined bouquet with ebullient red cherry and crushed strawberry scents laced with black truffle and sandalwood." He praises its medium-bodied palate, noting the "fine tannin, a keen line of acidity," and a finish filled with persistent black fruit. Martin concludes that this wine "has outstanding potential."

Jeb Dunnuck, writing for jebdunnuck.com, also rated the 2014 Enclos Tourmaline highly, giving it a score of 92. Dunnuck highlights that this Merlot, sourced from a tiny parcel on Peter Kwok’s property, offers more "texture, richness, and depth than most." He identifies flavors of "black cherries, currants, smoke, acacia flowers, and damp earth," and describes it as a "ripe, gamey, layered, medium to full-bodied Pomerol." Dunnuck appreciates its character and elegance, suggesting it will keep well for 15-20 years.

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com echoes these sentiments, also scoring it 92. Leve notes the wine's "sensuous, velvet character, with earthy plums, truffle and minerality." He acknowledges the wine's drinkability in its youth and remarks on its impressive development in the bottle.

James Suckling, from jamessuckling.com, aligns with Martin’s high praise, also awarding a score of 93. Suckling enjoys the "ripe-berry, chocolate and bay-leaf aromas" and admires its "full body, velvety tannins, and a fresh finish." He finds it "delicious and juicy," yet suggests it needs time to soften.

Antonio Galloni of Vinous provides another 92-point review, describing the wine as "a sensual, voluptuous wine" with notes of "black cherry, plum, menthol, and leather." Galloni appreciates its "super-ripe and racy" nature, acknowledging its depth and balance.
