Enclos de Viaud Lalande-de-Pomerol 2020
About the Producer
Enclos de Viaud is located on the Lalande bank of the Barbanne river in the lieu-dit Viaudet Maréchaude. Enclos de Viaud consists of 2,48 hectares split into two parcels. Merlot is the dominant variety, and the vineyard and soils are managed plot by plot.
Winemaker Jerome Aguirre uses a blend of oak, cement and stainless steel tanks for vinification and ageing in order to bring the best of each element to the wine. Situated on the banks of the Barbanne river which separates Lalande from Pomerol, this is some of the finest terroir and one of the best performing properties in the appellation.
91 Points - VertdeVin
"The nose is fruity, fresh, discreetly tight and offers a certain intensity. It reveals notes of ripe/pulpy wild cassis, strawberry, small notes of small bright red berries associated with touches of liquorish, star anis, minerality and fine hints of sweet spices. The mouth is fruity and offers juiciness, freshness, a certain gourmandize, an acidulous frame as well as a small tension, suavity and a nice freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh/pulpy cassis, bright blackberry, small notes of violet associated with touches of bright raspberry, small fresh/bright red currants as well as fine hits of lily, liquorish as well as hints of nutmeg and a discreet hint of sweet spices. The tannins are precise and elegant."

"Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections, faint watery edge. Somewhat restrained, delicate herbal savouriness, dark berry fruit, ripe plum, candied orange zest. Juicy, discreet fruit expression, integrated ripe tannins, black cherry on the finish, offers uncomplicated drinking pleasure."
90 Points - The Wine Cellar Insider
"Chocolate-coated plums and espresso notes are what you find initially. Medium-bodied, soft and creamy, with more of that chocolate-covered plum character in the finish. This is already delicious in your glass. Drink from 2023-2035."
89 Points - Decanter (2020)
"A juicy, unfussy Lalande de Pomerol where you have a sense of vivacity and spirit. Some rusticity to the tannins but hard to complain about."
94 Points - International Wine Report (2016)
The 2016 Enclos de Viaud begins with inviting aromas of cherries, blackberries, exotic spices, cedar, tobacco, wet stones and hints of spring florals which all slowly begin to take shape. This medium-bodied red displays a fantastic structure, with lovey fine tannins, that provide plenty of structural backbone. Flavors of fresh cherries, red fruits and spices continue to leave an impression as this heads into the long finish. This is a beautifully made wine, however it will require some additional bottle age before it begins to show its best stuff.
91 Points - Decanter (2015)
"This has gorgeous brambly fruit on the nose which straight off feels like a well-made and polished wine. The heat is a little apparent though which gets in the way of that fruit fully coming through in the mid-palate, but it’s hard to argue with this juicy and modern-styled Lalande. Good stuff from Vignobles Kwok."
