The 2015 Clos Du Marquis wine is gorgeous, but one of the more backward, closed wines in the vintage. This St-Julien wine is powerful and dense from the outset. This 2015 Clos Du Marquis wine is made from 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, aged in 50% new oak, it’s deep purple color is followed by promising notes of blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco and lead pencil. With full-bodied richness, a ripe, concentrated, structured feel, and impressive length. This is a superb Clos du Marquis wine that should give two or three decades of drinking pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2022 – 2042.
