Clos du Marquis

Clos du Marquis is a renowned Domaine vineyard located in the Saint-Julien appellation, in the heart of the Médoc. Renowned for the exceptional quality of its wines, Château boasts a rich history and benefits from an exceptional terroir.

The history of Clos du Marquis dates back to the 18th century, when the Marquis de Las Cases, owner of the famous Château Léoville-Las Cases, decided to create a separate parcel called Clos du Marquis. This special parcel was delimited to produce wines from the vines closest to the Marquis' home, thus benefiting from optimal conditions.

Over the generations, the de Las Cases family has continued to develop and refine the Clos du Marquis vineyard. Today, Château is owned by the Delon family, who also own Château Léoville-Las Cases. The Delon's have maintained the integrity of Domaine while bringing their expertise and commitment to quality winemaking.

Description Clos du Marquis 2005.

The wine presents itself to our eyes with a magnificent deep garnet-red color. On the nose, it offers a complex, intense bouquet. Notes of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry can be detected. Hints of tobacco and old leather add complexity and pleasure. On the palate, the attack is frank and evolves with power and elegance. The finesse of the tannins gives the sensation of a dense, mellow mouthfeel. The greediness of the fruit is fully expressed, carrying us through to the racy, lightly oaky finish.
