2015 La Petite Marquise St. Julien Bordeaux France Wine Tasting Note

  1. 2015 La Petite Marquise (St. Julien)

    1. The debut vintage for this new wine from the Delon family shows a true commitment to quality. Jean Hubert Delon has always considered Clos du Marquis to be a unique brand and not a second wine, as it comes from its own specific terroir. Regardless of how you look at it, adding a second wine (or a unique wine) only improves the top wine, which is the goal. La Petite Marquis is produced from a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, a much higher percentage of Merlot than you'll find in Clos du Marquis. Tobacco and black cherry on the nose, fresh but slightly tart on the palate with a splash of dark chocolate and cassis in the finish produced a wine that should drink well with just a year or two of age. 86 - 88 Pts
