Clos du Marquis Saint Julien 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Brand||Clos du Marquis|
Rich, ripe, and elegant, this wine comes from a separate parcel of Léoville las Cases that is treated as a distinct wine. With fine, dusty tannins and juicy acidity, it offers both richness and black currants from the Cabernet Sauvignon. It needs to age and should be ready to drink from 2025.
Rich and dense, with a fresh beam of mesquite, savory and tea streaking through the red and black currant preserve flavors. Shows good brambly energy through the finish, revealing a tug of licorice snap at the end. Best from 2020 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
