Enclos Tourmaline is located on the highest point of the famous plateau of the smallest appellation of Bordeaux: Pomerol.
The property was acquired by Peter Kwok and his son Howard in 2012.
Enclos Tourmaline is produced in small quantities only during great vintages.
The first vintage produced less than 1,000 bottles, and in 2013 no wines were made at all.

Following the image of the Tourmaline, a multi-colour precious gemstone, our estate echos the multiplicity and excellence of the terroir of Pomerol. This wine is made from three exceptional parcels. Each has a different but complementary type of terroir, and berries from these parcels form an exceptional cuvee.

The cellar, renovated in 2016 and surrounded by the legendary vineyards of the appellation, offers an incredible view of the magical plateau of Pomerol.

Winemaker Notes

Peter Kwok

Enclos Tourmaline pomerol

by Peter Kwok
Enclos Tourmaline has a very deep, almost black colour. In consistence with the colour the wine is powerful and concentrated but of great purity. Nose of strawberry jam, black cherry, and blackcurrant mixed with spices and light notes of liquorice. After circular movement of the glass, aromas of flowers as violet come mingle with this palette of fruits. Harmony and elegance. In the mouth the structure is both fresh and complex. The attack is velvety with a certain sweetness. The already delicate tannins are gradually implemented to become straight and silky. The long finish is greedy and creamy, signature of the great wines of Pomerol.
