Clos du Marquis St Julien Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: The grapes for this younger sibling of Léoville-Las Cases come from<br/>separate vineyards surrounded on all sides by Second Growths, so it shouldn't<br/>be an enormous surprise that it has produced a wine of this quality in 2006. It<br/>is incredibly elegant, with rich, stylish blackcurrant and raspberry fruit<br/>supported by firm tannins. There is an excellent structure and complexity<br/>boosted by the extra Cabernet Franc this year (13%, plus 44% Cabernet<br/>Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot) and a pure, long, focused finish.<br/>This is one of the great buys of the vintage.
