Steve and Denise Adams have owned L'Enclos since 2007. This American business man and his wife have a passion for the Pomerol appellation. Their objective is to express all the power and elegance of the terroir through the wines, whose quality they wish to improve. Steve Adams has renovated the winery and plans to restructure the vineyard. Château l'Enclos has a silica-gravel terroir, with a subsoil rich in the famous iron residues that are typical of great Pomerols. It is planted with 79% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec, with an average age of 36 years.
About the cuvée
The wines are aged for 14 months in barrels, 40% of which are renewed each year. On tasting, the wine has a deep ruby colour, and takes a few years to express its full character, developing voluptuous notes of dark fruit (blackberries). Rich and velvety on the palate, it releases a complex, pleasantly spicy array of flavours.
