The nose shows loads of plum spice and meat aromas as well as hints of licorice. It's full-bodied with firm yet velvety textured tannins. It's big and rounded...

The 2000 displays good intensity on the nose: blackcurrant, pomegranate, a touch of raspberry and vanilla. At present, this is more generous than the 2005, although not quite the same definition and breeding. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannins on the entry, graphite and a touch of tar interlacing the dark fruits. I prefer the finish on the 2005 to the 2000. This is very masculine and punchy at the moment, although doubtless it will mellow with another 3-4 years ageing.

This is very open with plum and sweet tobacco notes, and a round and juicy body. Really just starting to open up.

One of the great sleepers of the vintage and probably the best Clos de Marquis I have ever tasted...Dense opaque purple-colored with creme de cassis vanilla and cherry notes medium to full body an unctuous texture low acidity and a more evolved style than its bigger sibling Leoville Las Cases this dense chewy remarkably concentrated and stylish wine should be at its best between 2005 and 2018.

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.

Reticent at first this opens with time in the glass to show classic notes of cedar and tobacco underscored by dried herbs and black cherry. Clean and pure, the fruit is still surprisingly fresh. This has developed nicely and the tannins are in the right place making for a pleasurable wine that you can enjoy now.
