The 2019 Clos du Marquis is another cuvée from the Delon family that’s smaller than usual this year, as fully 20% of the vineyards that inform this bottling are in various stages of replanting, with the objective of bringing the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon vines up to more than 70%. Exhibiting aromas of inky cassis, plums, incense, wood smoke and spices, it’s medium to full-bodied, fleshy and concentrated, with lively acids, beautifully powdery tannins and a supple, more immediately charming profile than its big sibling across the street, Léoville-Las Cases. 2026 – 2055

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (April 2022), April 2022

Made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Clos du Marquis is deep garnet-purple colored. It strides boldly out of the glass with warm cassis, blackberry preserves, and ripe, juicy plums, leading to hints of cardamom, cumin seed, and chocolate box with a waft of camphor. Medium to full-bodied, it offers up plenty of rich, ripe black fruits with a grainy texture and spicy lift on the finish.
