At first glance, menthol and dried herbs give way to dark, rich blackberry. No signs of aging yet as the tannins remained dusty and sweet. Looking forward to watching this wine continue to develop.
Similar to other reviews. Really hit with tart cherry notes on the palate, very nice drinking solo and with dinner. Maybe a little pricey for what this is, but if 20-30 CAN $, good value.
External Reviews for Clos du Marquis Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Good full medium ruby. Superripe, exotic aromas of roasted currant, smoked meat and cocoa powder. Sweet, lush and silky, with compelling depth of texture and an intriguing gamey note. Very long finish features lush tannins. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Clos du Marquis 750ml
