(JS98-99 points) 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... (JS98-99 points) 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!

(JL94-96 points) Like an intricately cut garnet, there is a purple inflection in the color, supple in feel with silken tannins and a rich, chocolate-covered, plum finish straight outta Saint-Germain-des-Pres. This beauty should be even better with at least 5 years of age. The wine reached a healthy 14.8% alcohol, but there is no touch of heat, just pure, sweet, delectable fruits. Produced from 100% Merlot and using only micro vinification techniques, the grapes were whole berry fermented and 10% of the stems were retained to give the wine more structure and freshness. The harvest took place from September 22 to October 1. In only three years, Enclos Tourmalin has turned out to be a solid contender amongst the great wines of Pomerol.

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.

(WA91-93 points) 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. - Neal Martin
