Tasted by Jane Anson at Bordeaux, 09 May 2020
"Inky purple colour and straight onto intense, concentrated black fruits on the attack. The terroir for Clos de Marquis is a little further back from the river than Las Cases, and a little more susceptible to water stress, but it has kept its freshness and plump character to its black cherry and blackberry fruits. Tannins are chalky and tight, cradling the fruit and giving backbone and frame to the wine. 3.6pH, pretty low which no doubt emphasises the austere edge, but by the mid palate things have softened and opened. A yield of 40hl/ha. 50% new oak. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 93-95
"The 2019 Clos du Marquis is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 23% Merlot, harvested between the 21st of September and 9th of October. It is aging in French oak barriques, 50% new. The alcohol is 14.1% with a pH of 3.62 and an IPT of 79. Displaying a deep purple-black color, the nose is a little reticent to begin, but with just a little coaxing, it soon opens out to show off impressively flamboyant notes of blackberry preserves, baked plums and blackcurrant pastilles with suggestions of cinnamon toast, Darjeeling tea, licorice and camphor plus a hint of wilted roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate layers in all of these exciting mineral sparks with with the energetic, fresh black fruits, supported by rock-solid, ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and earthy. This a very polished and sophisticated Clos du Marquis!"
