Often confused as the second wine of Ch. Léoville-Las Cases, St Julien, Clos du Marquis is in fact a separate entity and a fine terroir in its own right, benefitting from the winemaking skill of the team at Las Cases. Showing an inky purple, with classic St Julien casssis and cedar on the nose alongside a touch of sweet vanillin spice, it is beautifully balanced on the palate, with fine tannins framing the tasty spiced fruit. This is another very good Clos du Marquis and one that will be best enjoyed between 5 and 15 years after the vintage.
