Rich yet firmly structured this is a very classic St.-Julien that's generous and polished with so much energy driving the long plush finish. Delicious now, but should hold for many years.

A dense wine the wood just showing at this stage through its dark tannins and superb rich fruit. The wine is ripe with a density of tannins that go right down deep. Big and powerful.

It's a beautiful wine offering classic Saint-Julien crème de cassis fruits as well as lots of rocky minerality, cedarwood, graphite, and spring flowers. With full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered mouthfeel, stunning purity of fruit, and a great finish, it needs a solid decant if drinking today and has another two decades or more of prime drinking.

This has a perfumy espresso edge to its racy red currant briar and blackberry bush notes. Long and refined through the finish with a pronounced minerality that should soften in a decade.

Long and refined through the finish with a pronounced minerality that should soften in a decade. Tight but a rather elegant expression of Cabernet overall. Best from 2016 through 2024.

Right off the bat, this is delicious, offering a blast of sweet, ripe, juicy and fresh cassis.

Medium-full bodied, there is sweetness, freshness and purity to the bright red fruits on the palate and in the nose. Drink this now with 30-60 minutes of decanting. 92 Points Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2009&wine=Clos%20du%20Marquis

Medium to full-bodied, the palate is solidly structured with firm, chewy tannins backing up the muscular fruit core, culminating in a mineral-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
