Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
Offers violet and blackberry on the nose with tar. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a fruity minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage. Best after 2013. -JS

As usual the second wine the 2006 Clos du Marquis exhibits a character similar to the grand vin but it is a more fruit-forward effort with sweeter tannins and a more precocious evolved personality. With super intense black cherry and cedary notes intermixed with hints of licorice and barrique this deep medium to full-bodied velvety-textured wine is ideal for consumption over the next 15+ years.

Bright full ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry kirsch cedar and sexy oak. Rich broad and pliant with chewy vibrant flavors of black fruits and licorice. This boasts excellent texture and depth for a second wine. Finishes... Bright full ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry kirsch cedar and sexy oak. Rich broad and pliant with chewy vibrant flavors of black fruits and licorice. This boasts excellent texture and depth for a second wine. Finishes with substantial dusty fine tannins and excellent length. A serious and full vintage for Clos du Marquis but less forbidding now that it's in bottle than a sample I tried from barrel last spring. 90 points

Very dark in the glass and this translates well into the intense depth of concentrated fruits on the palate. While pretty and floral on top this is a refined supple wine with great depth and fantastic length of palate...
