Clos du Marquis 2017, Saint-Julien 750ml
The name of this wine, created at the beginning of the 20th century when the vineyard was planted, was inspired by the Petit Clos adjacent to the Château de Léoville, residence of the Marquis de Las Cases.
Clos du Marquis is a historical brand by the Domaines Delon, a separate vineyard to Leoville Las Cases whose first vintage was released in 1902.
The creation of this brand was to allow a clear identification of two completely distinct terroirs. The situation remains unchanged today as the vineyard producing the Clos du Marquis is located on top terroirs of the Saint Julien appellation, surrounded by such prestigious Classified Growths as Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Barton.
Clos du Marquis 2017 reflects the attention and precision of the technical teams in both the vineyard and the winery. The Clos du Marquis 2017 reveals the brilliance and purity of fruit on an intense and gourmand aromatic palette. On the palate, the powerful attack shows off the personality and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, while the elegant tannic structure reveals a flattering and silky touch in the mouth. Supported by a beautiful acidic structure, the finish ends with a persistent length, highlighting the complexity of wine. Distinguished, brilliant and full of charm, Clos du Marquis 2017 is a great Saint-Julien wine.
