Origin:France - Saint-Julien
Established in 1902, Clos du Marquis is a wine originating from Petit Clos, the former home of the Marquis de Las Cases.
The Clos du Marquis vineyard is located next to Château Léoville Las Cases, in the exceptional terroir of the Saint-Julien appellation on the left bank of the Bordeaux region.
Clos du Marquis is Domaines Delon's strong brand, with a distinct identity distinct from Léoville Las Cases.
The wine from Clos de Marquis is one of the best red wines in Saint-Julien.
Clos du Marquis is a remarkable vineyard located in the most prestigious terroir of the Saint-Julien appellation, 500 meters from the entrance of the Léoville Las Cases vineyard.
The Clos du Marquis vineyards have an average age of 35 years and cover approximately 43 hectares. The homogeneous terroir consists of surface organic matter and the soil consists of Quaternary sandy clay gravel.
These gravel soils are older and finer than the terroir found in Léoville Las Cases, and they drain well.
Further out in the Gironde, Clos du Marquis ripens late, at the end of a very long and gradual ripening cycle.
It is recommended to sober up 1 hour before tasting.
