This is very close in quality to the great 2015. Full body yet complex and layered. Very refined. Fine grained tannins. Super tight. A real beauty here. Only 3,000. Beautiful follow up. Second vintage.
The 2016 Enclos Tourmaline is pure Merlot cropped at 50 hectoliters per hectare and matured in new oak. It has a beautiful bouquet with black cherries, crushed violets and just a hint of licorice that is very well defined and gains intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, good weight in the mouth with a fine line of acidity. One bottle felt a little pinched, but a second was much more refined and demonstrated superb detail and focus on the finish, with a gorgeous saline/black pepper aftertaste. My score reflects that second showing. (NM)
The 2016 Enclos Tourmaline is round, sensual and polished, offering striking fruit purity, no hard edges and terrific overall balance. Black cherry, chocolate, French oak and licorice give the wine its deep, unctuous personality. Voluptuous and racy, with ripe fruit and silky tannins, the 2016 possesses tons of intensity and richness in a very ripe style that is brought out further by vinification in new French oak barrels. Enclos Tourmaline emerges from a single parcel that is part of La Patache. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted two times. (AG)
