Saint Julien Bordeaux 2008750ml
Established nearly 100 years ago, Clos du Marquis was inspired by the Petit Clos adjacent to the Chateau de Leoville, the official residence of Marquis de Las Cases. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc is produced from grapes grown on the top vineyard parcels of Saint-Julien, surrounded by prestigious crus of Saint-Julien and Pauillac. The soil is royalty, and the wine shows it—intoxicating aromas of currants, red cherries and cassis, flecked with red flowers, hints of graphite, tobacco, and cedar. Medium to full on the palate, the wine is exquisitely balanced, with lovely tannins and a pretty finish.
