Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
Beautiful aromas of currant lightly toasted oak and perfume. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a tight finish. Still holding back.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008.

A terrific Clos du Marquis and clearly of second or third-growth quality this dark purple-colored wine reveals structure brooding backwardness and rich expansive character. The wine exhibits plenty of sweet kirsch black currant fruit intermixed with high quality subtle new oak and steely mineral characteristics. Rich and medium to full-bodied with ripe tannin this is a dazzling Clos du Marquis. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018.

An outstanding second... Deep ruby-red. Plum and roasted nuts on the nose. Large-scaled vinous and deep; thick fruit is given clarity by sound acidity. Very long and subtle on the finish with serious but harmonious tannins. An outstanding second label as good as most classified growths from St. Julien.
