Clos du Marquis was created in 1902. The vineyard was named after Petit Clos (small walled land) directly adjacent to Marquis de Las Cases’ residence: Château de Léoville. Born on the greatest terroirs of the Saint-Julien appellation, the 2012 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (majority of the blend), Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The wine is pure, and reveals lovely aromas including blackcurrant liqueur (creme de cassis), crushed rock, and vanilla. The 2012 Clos du Marquis is a great success, complete, harmonious, and very distinguished. Truly one of the best classics from Medoc!
