Clos du Marquis St. Julien 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

With more than a hint of the Godfather about him, owner Jean-Hubert Delon is aman of extremely high standards but he is rightly pleased with this outstandingClos du Marquis. Easily of Classed Growth quality, its pure, crunchyblackcurrant and dark chocolate nose is followed by an elegant, minerallyblackberry and coffee palate with finely textured tannins and a rich, polishedfinish. Made with more Cabernet Sauvignon than last year (58%) this is veryclose to the magnificent 2006 and as good as the 2005, which is not somethingyou can say of many wines this year. Excellent value.

Blackberry, cassis, fresh cigar tobacco and cedar plank greet the nose and the wine has a good, deep colour for the vintage; there is a smooth, slightly acidic red fruit entry with a mild root and stem element on a surprising warm finish. Good effort in a trying year with some further cellaring potential (3-4 years). 89 points.
