Château L’Enclos Grand Vin de Bordeaux Pomerol AOC

Château L’Enclos has a history dating back to the 19th century. The château was constructed in 1898 by Pierre Larroucaud, the owner of the property at the time. Descendants of the Larroucaud family continued to own and manage the Pomerol estate of Château L’Enclos until 2006, when it was purchased by the American owners, Stephen Adams and Denise Adam who own other Bordeaux properties and a Napa Valley estate on Howell Mountain.

There are three unique terroirs in the 9.5 hectares of vineyard of Château L’Enclos with sand, gravel and flint soils. There are also some iron deposits in the soil which add to the complexity of the wine, vinified under the consultation of Michel Roland.
