2003 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

SKU #1024486 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a mouthful, with loads of fruit and truffle character. Exotic and wild, but starting to close. Give this five years. Inner quote mark (5/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In 2003, this was the second wine of Leoville Las Cases as opposed to a separate entity. A brilliant effort, it was harvested between September 11 and 26, and boasts 13.3% natural alcohol. The final blend was 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Its deep garnet/ruby/plum color is followed by notes of bay leaf, black currants, licorice and lead pencil shavings. The wine is deep, full-bodied, rich and fully mature, but its length, richness, freshness and complete feel suggest it will continue to drink well for 7-8 years. It’s a beauty. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Roasted plum, currant and leather on the nose. Thick, rich and deep, with uncanny sweetness and mouth coverage for this bottling. Finishes very long, with a suggestion of dried fruits and big tannins that are even sweeter than those of the 2005. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very pretty aromas of blackberry, currant and licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety, round tannins and lots of attractive vanilla and berry flavors. Long. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2006)

K&L Notes

Barrel sample according to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux buyer: "Closed on the nose. Quite fine depth of flavor and superb richness. Quite tannic at back end. Plenty of sweet mid-palate fruit. Blackberries abound. Only 21 hectoliters/hectare--one of the lowest in Bordeaux for 2003. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. *.5" (3/2004)
