1994 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Already evolved and tasting relatively mature, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers an excellent berry-scented nose intermixed with dried herbs, earth, and sweet oak. It possesses medium body, low acidity, excellent concentration, and a nicely layered and nuanced finish.

Medium ruby-red. Plum, game, nuts and saddle leather on the nose. Nicely textured, smooth and vinous, with enticing plum and smoke flavors; if the '98 is like Pauillac, this is quintessential St. Julien. Finishes with ripe tannins and good length.
This red has mineral, currant and mint aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with polished tannins and a fruity, succulent finish. Early drinking, yet a very good red for the vintage (Web-2001)
Not really a second wine as it always comes from a single parcel of las Cases.
