2018 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407933 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Dark fruit and blueberries with rosemary, tobacco and incense undertones on the nose. Very St.-Julien and classic in style and character. It’s full-bodied with firm, polished tannins. The palate is savory and balanced, leading to a long, flavorful finish. Very beautiful, refined fruit character to this with focus and polish. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark It boasts a deep, saturated purple color as well as ripe, powerful, yet complex aromatics. Full-bodied and rich, with a stacked mid-palate, this beauty builds on the palate with ripe, polished tannin, ample oomph, and a great finish. It’s a powerful, concentrated wine from the team at Léoville Las Cases that will benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age and keep for two decades. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A beautiful black currant flavor and an immense background of tannins mark this wine is from a single parcel of the Léoville las Cases vineyard. The purity of the fruits and acidity is impressive. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure and expressive, with beautiful aromas of violet, warm cassis and fresh cherries leading into a mix of plum sauce and blackberry preserve flavors carried by a well-imbedded graphite spine. Subtle kiss of sweet bay at the very end. Lovely. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black in color, it displays flamboyant scents of kirsch, crushed black cherries and warm cassis with hints of cinnamon stick, underbrush and chocolate box plus a waft of sandalwood. Full-bodied and built like a brick house with firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness supporting the muscular fruit, it finishes long and spicy. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark More sombre than the Petite Marquise, as you would expect. More of a Las Cases feel, with the tannic heft of the vintage apparent, although as it opens this has an elegance and a drawn-out journey through the palate, with a good wall of fine tannins. Excellent-quality and a vintage that feels a little more accessible at this stage than in some years. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Clos du Marquis has a rich and forward bouquet with layers of red berry fruit mixed with camphor and touches of iron filings. The palate is rich and powerful, rounded in texture with white pepper and thyme infusing the black fruit. This is a voluminous and powerful Clos du Marquis with depth and girth, leading to a tannic finish that will need a few years to soften. Good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep purple core and bright purple rim. Deep, dark and charry. Combination of ripe and intense cassis and a rocky, more savoury quality to add complexity, yet it's scented too. Tannins are incredibly fine, many layered, dry and yet supple. And great freshness. A very good second wine. 17/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
