  Any drinker who loves the beauty of classic Margaux must consider this exceptional wine for their portfolio. In 2016 they began their latest ever picking on the 3rd October – it was a warm September but it wasn’t hot. While tasting we were told it became evident very quickly that the quality of the grapes coming into the chai was top flight.

This morning, Domaines Delon, owners of St Julien ‘2nd growth’, Ch Leoville Las Cases, have released an exceptional Clos du Marquis 2016. In our minds, this is potentially the most majestic Clos du Marquis produced to date and one that confirms its place amongst the elite wines of St Julien. It is hard to imagine how the 2015 could be improved on but the Delons have achieved this. The 2016 simply has it all.
