There is a swirling mass of black fruit in this wine and it is soaked in oak, too, so the whole experience is heady, rich and a tiny bit overwhelming. Dry and actively tannic, and with a brief hint of the cooling herbal note which other wines show more prominently, this is a powerful 2020 and a wine that needs at least ten years under its belt before you open a bottle. There is no doubt that the quality of the fruit is very good and so I have no doubt that it will balance out nicely in time. Rating: 17.5+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jun 2021)

The 2020 Enclos Tourmaline is impressive. A rich, heady Pomerol, Enclos possesses tremendous depth and richness in both its fruit and tannic structure. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, licorice and mocha abound. The 2020 needs time for the searing tannins to soften, but it appears to have a very bright future. It is one of the most virile wines in Pomerol. Drinking range: 2030 - 2045 Rating: 92-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jun 2021)

The 2020 Enclos Tourmaline was picked on September 16 at 32hl/ha and matured entirely in new oak. It has a chiseled bouquet, beautifully defined and focused, unfurling gradually to reveal blackberry, blueberry, crushed rock and light violet aromas. There is a sense of "weightlessness" about these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very sapid and saline, a Pomerol that is keen to get the juices flowing even at this early stage. This has wonderful poise and precision. Perhaps one of the best Enclos Tourmaline vintages that I have tasted since its inception. Highly recommended. Just 2,400 bottles produced.

A solid, tight red with blackberries, black olives and hints of brown sugar and walnuts. Full and tight with fine, persistent tannins. Tight and focused. Rating: 96-97 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (May 2021)
