The 2003 Clos du Marquis is one of the finest second wines of the Medoc. Forty-six percent of the crop was used in this blend of 54.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.6% Merlot, and 2.9% Petit Verdot. With higher alcohol (13.43%) than its big sister (13.27%), it exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color, great fruit, medium body, tremendous purity, and a long, flashy finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
90-92/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2004)
