The 2010 Clos du Marquis reveals a very delicate and silky nose with lovely fruit maturity and superb structure. A tasty, silky, yet dense Saint-Julien.
Clos du Marquis 2010
Wine Advocate-Parker :
With the alcohol hitting 13.6% in a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, this wine displays plenty of sweet kirsch, licorice and black currant fruit in a classy, seductive style, with medium to full body, soft but abundant tannins and a long finish. It does indeed possess the elegance and finesse of its bigger sibling, Leoville Las Cases. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
