2010 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

SKU #1128647 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows beautiful aromas of flowers, raspberries and blackberries that follow through to a full body with ultra silky tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes. Best in 2018 or later. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* A great wine, packed with black currant fruits, sweet tannins and beautiful acidity. Made by the team at Léoville las Cases, this wine reveals an elegant, restrained structure, ripe and delicious fruit and a darker, tighter texture for aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a lush edge, with seamlessly layered blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, along with a racy graphite edge and a back end of coffee and bittersweet ganache notes. A solid tug of iron is buried on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030. (JM, Web-2013) Inner quote mark

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With the alcohol hitting 13.6% in a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, this wine displays plenty of sweet kirsch, licorice and black currant fruit in a classy, seductive style, with medium to full body, soft but abundant tannins and a long finish. It does indeed possess the elegance and finesse of its bigger sibling, Leoville Las Cases. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep, bright red. Inviting aromas of black cherry and sweet spices lifted by a floral nuance. Supple and fine-grained; remarkably smooth and plush for a young Clos du Marquis, with black cherry and dark berry flavors conveying a restrained sweetness and an impression of elegance. Plenty of stuffing here for mid-term aging but seamless enough to give immediate pleasure. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

K&L Notes

92 points Neal Martin for Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Clos du Marquis 2010 has a lovely bouquet with ripe blackberry, raspberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with cedar and cigar box aromas--pure Cabernet heaven. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly raw entry. To pick straws, it feels a little disjointed compared to its peers at the moment, although there is good substance and weight in the mouth, certainly sufficient structured on the finish to merit long-term cellaring. It just needs to find more cohesion." (03/2014)
