Clos du Marquis 2018

The complexity and elegance of an exceptional Saint-Julien

Unique and unusual, the Clos du Marquis 2018 is undeniably one of the finest vintages of the iconic Saint-Julien estate.

A two-stroke vintage marked by extreme climatic contrasts, 2018 got somewhat of a late start. The beautifully dry and hot summer that arrived in July, bringing plenty of sunshine with it, allowed the harvest to begin under calm conditions.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), Merlot (30%), and Cabernet Franc (6%), the Clos du Marquis 2018 shows all the qualities of an exceptional Saint-Julien.

Intensely expressive and complex, the Clos du Marquis 2018 presents an aromatic palette full of elegance. The notes of red and black berries recall blueberries, followed by notes of sweet spices and herbs. Mineral graphite notes appears when the wine is swirled in the glass. This vintage packs the palate full of power and structure with firm, tightly-grained tannins. The lively acidity helps support the brilliant finish. The 2018 vintage of Clos du Marquis is one of the key references of the left bank of Bordeaux and one of the most beautiful vintages of Clos du Marquis, certainly made to be aged.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Clos du Marquis is composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, with 13% press wine added back to the blend. Grapes were harvested September 18 to October 10, with yields of 35.5 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine has 14.5% alcohol. It will be aged in barriques, 55% new. The finished blend was put into barrels last December. Deep purple-black in color, it displays flamboyant scents of kirsch, crushed black cherries and warm cassis with hints of cinnamon stick, underbrush and chocolate box plus a waft of sandalwood. Full-bodied and built like a brick house with firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness supporting the muscular fruit, it finishes long and spicy.
