Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 91-93

Clos du Marquis is owned by Domaines Delon of Ch Léoville Las Cases, and the vineyard is surrounded by the triplet of Léovilles: Las Cases, Poyferré, and Barton. This 2017 has a shy nose at first, but begins to open up with aromas of blackcurrants, cherries, and liquorice. Its St Julien style is distinguished by its cool Cabernet qualities and refined tannins, with a medium weight and an understated but lengthy finish.

Producer

Clos du Marquis

Clos du Marquis was first created in 1904 as a "brand", a second wine to Léoville Las Cases whichwould absorb the barrels not deemed fine enough for the grand vin. Over time it became a wine inits own right and since 1989 has been produced from separate parcels which lie outside Léoville LasCases' main vineyards.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
