Tasting Note:

We're big fans of Clos du Marquis. This Jean-Hubert Delon wine is always pure and ravishing, sleek and honest, a proper wine that expresses its terroir and is never plastered with make-up - a natural beauty that will age with grace and charm. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, this hails from a separate plot to the west of the D2. For the first time (we can remember) there is a second wine called La Petite Marquise, so there is greater selection for Clos du Marquis. This is a connoisseur's wine, it's athletic, graceful, sleek and floral. It's so composed and classy with clear detailed red berry fruit, cherries, cool cassis and fine minerals. The palate is all noble fruit - focussed, tight knit and persistent. As always, there's no puppy fat, this is svelte, intense, seamless fruit with superb tannin integration - there's a super sense of tension and so much verve. A wine for purists!
