Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
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. –JS

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2013
Musty and mushroomy, with red fruit chasers on the nose and palate. Round and fruity, but still needs three years. Pull the cork in 2013.

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... 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 3-4 years and should keep for 15-20.

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... 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.
