Clos du Marquis - St Julien 2012
This has always been quite a special Bordeaux for us and we are so pleased to able to offer this wonderful wine. The 2012 vintage was good for the property and although the wine can be enjoyed now, it will hold in bottle for some 20 or so years if well cellared. It is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and has a wonderful core of fruit based on cherries and red and black berries backed by some dried tobacco notes. Not overblown but certainly not a lightweight, the wine is very smooth with moderate intensity and great purity.
