K&L Notes

This wine and the vineyard it comes from were once part of Château Léoville Las-Cases. The growing reputation of the wine led owner Jean-Hubert Delon to position Clos du Marquis as a separate estate. 93 points Neal Martin: "The Clos du Marquis 2005 is evolving into a little beauty. It has an opulent, downright sexy bouquet with macerated dark cherries, briary, mint interlaced with candied orange peel that is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with sturdy tannin cloaked in spicy red fruit, hints of red peppercorns and graphite infusing the finish that fans out gloriously. Yet everything remains tightly controlled thanks to the tight rein on acidity. Cannot afford Léoville Las-Cases? Then you know where to come." (02/2015)

    The 2005 Clos du Marquis is a beautiful and elegant Bordeaux that offers a lot of pleasure for the price. It is full-bodied, with nice dark fruit flavors that are balanced by undertones of minerals and just the right amount of acidity. One could drink it now, but the 2005 Clos du Marquis will drink better with a few more years of bottle age.
