The superb second wine, the 2005 Clos du Marquis, reflects the utter brilliance of the 2005 grand vin. It boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of lead pencil, ripe cherries and black currants, and hints of earth and vanillin. Dense, chewy, fleshy, and full-bodied, this beauty will be drinkable in 3andndash;4 years, and should keep for 15andndash;20.

Good full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, mocha, coffee and spicy oak. Big, dry, broad and rich, with a chewy quality and noteworthy sweetness to the plummy flavor. This has more baby fat than the young 2006 but not quite as much detail or verve. Finishes quite broad, with major ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit.

Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberry, blackberry, mineral and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate. This is chewy yet silky, with a long, long finish. Balanced and powerful. Best after 2012.


Winemaker's Notes:

Clos du Marquis's grapes actually come from a separate area of vineyards<br/>(rather than younger or less successful vines at Léoville-Las Cases)<br/>surrounded on all sides by other Second Growths. This is made with much more<br/>Merlot (38%) than the Léoville-Las Cases and is very rich, with sweet,<br/>creamy, overripe raspberries and blackberries with leather overtones. It is a<br/>very precise wine within a beautifully integrated framework of new oak and<br/>classy tannins. This is a cracking Claret and one of the best value wines<br/>of the vintage.
