2005 Clos du Marquis St. Julien Bordeaux France Wine Tasting Note

  1. 2005 Clos du Marquis (St. Julien)

    1. Forest floor and cedar chest notes are easy to find. On the palate, a generous dose of ripe cassis and black cherries is young, yet approachable, due to the high quality of the tannins.

    2. Dark in color, tobacco, truffle, blackberry, cassis, oak and black cherry scents lead to a full bodied, concentrated wine that in any blind tasting would crush several famous Classified Bordeaux wines. Powerful, rich and intense, this round textured wine fills your mouth with layers if sweet, ripe, juicy, Cabernet Sauvignon. Give it a few more years (as it's still tight at the moment) and start drinking it in 2015 and over the 10-15 years.
