I am not a great believer in the quality of most second wines, as they tend to be a dumping ground for everything deemed not desirable for the grand vin. However, such second wines as Forts de Latour, Bahans-Haut-Brion, Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux, and Clos du Marquis are serious wines that possess the character of their more complex and concentrated siblings, yet are more supple and accessible. Clos du Marquis is not to be missed in the 1993-95 vintages. This deep ruby/purple-colored wine reveals the sweet, pure cassis fruit of Leoville-Las-Cases, good fatness, medium body, low acidity, and no astringency or harshness in the lush finish. (RP)
Medium ruby-red. Plum, game, nuts and saddle leather on the nose. Nicely textured, smooth and vinous, with enticing plum and smoke flavors; if the '98 is like Pauillac, this is quintessential St. Julien. Finishes with ripe tannins and good length.
This red has mineral, currant and mint aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with polished tannins and a fruity, succulent finish. Early drinking, yet a very good red for the vintage (Web-2001)
