Bordeaux fans, you are in for a real treat...
Clos du Marquis is owned by and produced at Bordeaux royalty Chateau Leoville-Las-Cases, a 2nd Growth Bordeaux that fetches $300+ per bottle.
Clos du Marquis is not the second wine (younger vines) of Leoville-Las-Cases. Rather, it is its own label within the estate; the fruit comes from some of the finest vineyards in Saint-Julien, which flank Leoville-Las-Cases vineyards. Add to the mix the same winemakers, and this Bordeaux in this monster vintage is a real treasure for those in the know!
This 2015 is sensational!
A monster Bordeaux vintage makes this particular Clos du Marquis a standout!
