  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Clos du Marquis was picked from 8-30 September and is matured in 53% new oak with 14.25% alcohol. It is very perfumed and high-toned on the nose. The 2022 is floral and powerful, with black cherries and blueberry fruit, perhaps not quite the delineation, almost pastille-like. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fresh with pleasing mineralité. This remains linear and tensile toward the finish, with graphite lingering on the aftertaste. Excellent. Drink 2028-2048

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 93-95+

    "We've never seen such refined Cabernet Sauvignon at this property," says Jean-Hubert Delon of the 2022 Clos du Marquis, and the resulting wine is certainly unusually suave and expressive, bursting with aromas of cassis, plums, orange zest, violets and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with excellent concentration, supple tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish, it will likely offer a rather broad drinking window.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    With an equal proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot, Domaines Delon Vice Chairman Jean-Guillaume Prats and his team have turned out a generous and opulent Clos du Marquis. Brimming with bright, high-toned purple berry fruit, and slate minerality on the nose. Full bodied with a rounded weighty feel, complemented by fresh acidity and dollops of leathery tannins. Great length on the finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 95-96

    Structured and fluffy with a blanket of fine tannins. Full-bodied yet agile and floating. Juicy at the end. Excellent finish. Lots of lead pencil and crushed stone at the end. 45.5% merlot, 44.5% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    I loved the 2022 Clos Du Marquis, which is a brilliant effort, if not the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted. Cassis, graphite, and floral notes all define the bouquet, and it's full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and flawless balance. It shows the ripe, concentrated, powerful style of the vintage yet is incredibly pure and seamless, with everything in the right places. It's going to round into form with just a few years of bottle age but have decades of prime drinking.

Producer

Clos du Marquis

Clos du Marquis was first created in 1904 as a "brand", a second wine to Léoville Las Cases whichwould absorb the barrels not deemed fine enough for the grand vin. Over time it became a wine inits own right and since 1989 has been produced from separate parcels which lie outside Léoville LasCases' main vineyards.

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
