Reviews for 2005 Clos du Marquis Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
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

The Clos du Marquis 2005 is evolving into a little beauty. It has an opulent, downright sexy bouquet with macerated dark cherries, briary, mint interlaced with candied orange peel that is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with sturdy tannin cloaked in spicy red fruit, hints of red peppercorns and graphite infusing the finish that fans out gloriously. Yet everything remains tightly controlled thanks to the tight rein on acidity. Cannot afford Léoville Las-Cases? Then you know where to come.

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.
