    An intense and majestic wine from Saint-Julien

    Harvested between September 30th and October 19th, the Cabernets (73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc) and Merlots (24%) that form Clos du Marquis 2016 provide this emblematic other wine of Château Léoville-Las-Cases with a fruity likeability while maintaining body and power on the palate.

    On the nose, Clos du Marquis 2016 expresses intense notes of black fruits (black cherries) and balsamic cedar fragrances. The palate entry is dynamic with a beautiful acidity, and develops on the mid-palate a powerful, structured character with elegance and tone. The wine impresses with its precision to the point of giving an impression of gustative tension. Tannin is present here, though hidden. The wine is a piece of art. A Clos du Marquis with amazing power and balance, a Saint-Julien showing great ageing capacity. Superb!

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Blended of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Clos du Marquis has a very deep garnet-purple color and is a little broody to begin, giving way to notes of crushed blackcurrants and black cherries with touches of warm plums, pencil shavings, earth and new leather with a waft of yeast extract. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, it has bold fruit matched by freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.
