The 2015 Le Clos du Marquis emerges exclusively from 30+ year-old vines on the property. Lavender, violet, plum, crème de cassis, spice and menthol meld together in a deep, beautifully layered Saint-Julien built on spherical texture and juiciness. Silky tannins give the 2015 its up-front, racy personality, while sweet floral notes add aromatic lift on the finish. This is a very pretty and complete wine. Tasted two times.

The 2015 Clos du Marquis is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc cropped at 39 hl/ha between 22 September and 9 October, a total of 15 days of picking. Matured in 50% new oak, it has a pure and harmonious bouquet with blackberry, sous-bois and subtle tobacco aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin in the mouth, a keen line of acidity, fine precision here with a mineral-rich finish that exudes terroir expression. This is a great Clos du Marquis from Jean-Hubert Delon and his team, a Clos du Marquis with swagger. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2040

Gorgeous, with anise, plum, blackberry and sweet tobacco notes already melded together seamlessly. Fleshy and inviting through the finish, with long, velvety tannins that are the hallmark of 2015. This is a delicious wine in the making. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc. Very dark crimson. Very fragrant and much more concentrated and rich than Petite Marquise. Cool and fresh. Really very sophisticated. Bravo! Compete and sappy. 13.8%. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2035

Very good, broad, spicy Cabernet fruit; discreet at first but fine and long. Good middle richness and the classic firmness of Las Cases on the finish. A separate wine, not a second label. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2030

The launch of a second wine seems to have increased the quality of Clos du Marquis, which was already high. Savoury, sweet and well balanced, with none of the firmness the wine can show in its youth, this has plenty of oak as well as bramble and red fruit intensity.
