International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Deep ruby-red. Plum and roasted nuts on the nose. Large-scaled, vinous and deep; thick fruit is given clarity by sound acidity. Very long and subtle on the finish, with serious but harmonious tannins. An outstanding second label, as good as most classified growths from St. Julien.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 122

A terrific Clos du Marquis, and clearly of second or third-growth quality, this dark purple-colored wine reveals structure, brooding backwardness, and rich, expansive character. The wine exhibits plenty of sweet kirsch black currant fruit intermixed with high quality, subtle new oak, and steely, mineral characteristics. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, this is a dazzling Clos du Marquis.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Thoroughly well-crafted red. Aromas of berries and asphalt with hints of mint. Medium-bodied, with a complement of polished, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Second label of Château Léoville Las Cases.

A mixed showing for this bottle. Still enjoyable, but this one was on the verge of cresting. Leathery cassis nose was still there, and the fruit showed ripe and in balance, but turned a touch raisin with time in the glass. I would advise opening and pouring rather than a decant at this stage, we may have pushed it beyond its comfort zone! So how about 90 for the wine and -3 for the wine lover!

Delicious wine with all the gorgeous complexity of St. Julien. Lighter than a Barton but beautiful. Incredible value. Aerated for 2 hours in bottle. Probably at its peak, but not declining.
