The smoothness and softness of a Saint-Julien wine

The estate

Founded in 1902, Clos du Marquis is a wine that originates from Petit Clos, the former home of the Marquis de Las Cases. Adjoining that of Chateau Leoville Las Cases, the Clos du Marquis vineyard is located on the great terroir of the Saint-Julien appellation on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. A strong brand of the Domaines Delon, Clos du Marquis has a unique identity, different from that of Leoville Las Cases. The wines of Clos de Marquis are among the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien.

The vineyard

Located on the most prestigious terroir of the Saint-Julien appellation, Clos du Marquis is an exceptional vineyard, 500 meters from the entrance to the Leoville Las Cases vineyard. Aged 35 years on average, the Clos du Marquis vineyard covers approximately 43 hectares of vines. The homogeneous terroir is made up of organic matter on the surface with the soils composed of Quaternary gravel. These gravel soils are older and finer than those of the terroir found at Leoville Las Cases, offering fantastic drainage. Further from the Gironde, the grapes of Clos du Marquis ripen later, at the end of a very long and gradual ripening cycle.

The vintage

A mild and rainy winter, as well as a warm and humid spring, encouraged an early start to the cycle. Although subsequent conditions were ideal for vine development, yields were lower than the previous year. Low summer precipitation, combined with good temperature variations, provided ideal conditions for ripening.

Blend

The 2020 Clos du Marquis is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (6%).

Tasting

Beautifully concentrated, the 2020 Clos du Marquis seduces with its power, structure and aromatic richness as well as its delicious, saline finish.
