For many years Las Cases' second wine has been the equivalent of a classified growth in the Medoc.

For many years Las Cases' second wine has been the equivalent of a classified growth in the Medoc. The 2008 Clos du Marquis may be one of the two or three finest second wines I have tasted from proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that came in at 13.5% natural alcohol it is a pure deep full-bodied effort displaying classic aromas of creme de cassis licorice and crushed rocks. On the palate there is a sensational black fruit character no hard edges and a seamless integration of all the component parts. This wine should drink beautifully for 15 or more years.

Ripe and refined with pure driven plum raspberry and black cherry fruit and sleek structure. Flickers of charcoal roasted cedar and tobacco hang in the background. Should age nicely. Drink now through 2017.-J.M.

Delon although it did not quite meet my expectations under blind conditions. It has a refined well-defined bouquet with blackberry cedar and Margaux-like violets. The aromatics are fresh and vibrant with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied and succulent fleshy and generous with a sweet velvety finish. Very satisfying though it is perhaps not a long term Saint Julien. Tasted January 2012.
