Released this afternoon, alongside sibling-estates Châteaux Haut-Brisson and Tour St Christophe, Enclos Tourmaline is a 'micro-cuvée' from the tiny 1.2 ha estate of the same name in Pomerol, owned by financier and wine estate owner Peter Kwok. His investment and relentless pursuit of quality has elevated Enclos Tourmaline into the premier league of Pomerol. Situated in between Le Pin and Fleur Petrus, only around 3000 bottles are made each year, hence the wine is offered in cases of three bottles. James Suckling scores the 2020 vintage 96-97 points. The release price of £295 per three bottles puts this at around 8.5% above the price of the 2019, which was scored identically by Suckling.
Offered en primeur, landing spring 2023.
