Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88-90

(92% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot and 2% cabernet franc; 5.3 g/l total acidity; 3.65 pH; IPT 65; 13.5% alcohol; 33 h/h yield; 40% new oak): Bright ruby. Aromas of fresh blackcurrant, spicy minerals and violet. Then sweeter in the mouth, with an element of sweet spices complicating raspberry and cassis flavors. Harmonious acidity and silky, persistent tannins are the hallmark of yet another great wine from Jean-Hubert Delon in 2012. It's also a unique version of Clos du Marquis with this much cabernet sauvignon, though ever since the creation of LLC's true second wine, Le Petit Lion (which now gets most of the estate's lesser merlot fruit), the cabernet sauvignon percentage has steadily increased in Clos du Marquis.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-93

The wine is pure with lots of creme de cassis, crushed rock and vanillin characteristics in its long, medium to full-bodied personality. Given the fact that this vineyard was once part of the larger Leoville Las Cases estate, it is no surprise that it is similar to its more famous as well as more expensive cousin. A strong effort in this vintage, it should drink well for 15-20 years.

About This Producer


The Second Growth classified estate of Leoville Las Cases continues to produce wines of exceptional quality, rivaling those of the First Growth producers. The wines are full-bodied, concentrated and complex, and have tremendous aging potential. Typical blends consist of over 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, with lesser amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and a small amount of Petit Verdot. Bargain hunters should also keep an eye out for the estate's second label, Clos du Marquis.
