Clos du Marquis  comes from the great terroirs of the Saint-Julien appellation that were not part of the former Léoville estate. Created in 1902, the Clos du Marquis has its origins in the "Petit Clos" adjacent to the Château de Léoville, home of the Marquis de Las Cases. Located further west and surrounded by prestigious Crus Classés (like Léoville Poyferré and Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande), the Clos du Marquis thus displays typical Saint-Julien characteristics: structure, complexity, balance, distinction and great ageing potential.

In recent months we have seen quite an activity for the Clos du Marquis 1995 and 1996 and this has been encouraging and we are pleased to bring you a top vintage of 
2005 in this offer. In addition, we have some big formats in France and ready for delivery in mid 2018.

RP 91 The superb second wine , the 2005 Clos du Marquis,  reflects the utter brilliance of the 2005 grand vin . It boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of lead pencil, ripe cherries and black currants, and hints of earth and vanillin. Dense, chewy, fleshy, and full bodied,  this beauty  will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should keep for 15-20.

Clos du Marquis 2004
RP 87-89:  One of Bordeaux's top second wines, the 2004 Clos du Marquis exhibits crunchy, juicy, red cherry and currant fruit along with notions of herbs and spice box. Well-made, medium-bodied,  elegant, and  reminiscent of its bigger sibling, it should age well for 10-15 years.
 
Clos du Marquis 2003
In 2003, this was the second wine of Leoville Las Cases as opposed to a separate entity.  A brilliant effort, it was harvested between September 11 and 26, and boasts 13.3% natural alcohol. The final blend was 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Its deep garnet/ruby/plum color is followed by notes of bay leaf, black currants, licorice and lead pencil shavings. The wine is deep, full-bodied,  rich and fully mature, but its length, richness, freshness and complete feel suggest it will continue to drink well for 7-8 years.  It's a beauty.

Clos du Marquis 1998
RP 90:  A superb effort, the 1998 exhibits abundant quantities of black currant and cherry fruit subtley dosed with toasty oak. A medium to full-bodied, nicely-textured, pure effort, with a moderately tannic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2014.
