2019 La Petite Marquise  (St. Julien) 90
Medium-bodied, forward and fresh with earthy red currants and a touch of tobacco leaf on the nose and palate. The wine is soft, vibrant and leaves you with supple textured, red currants in the polished finish. You can enjoy this St, Julien on release. Drink from 2022-2032.

Medium-bodied, forward, soft, round and fresh with a juicy, cherry, red plum, herb and currant finish. This should be delicious on release.

2017 La Petite Marquise  (St. Julien) 88
Forward in style, this wine is all about the core of sugar dusted, freshly plucked cherries and charmingly glib tannins. Medium bodied, it will drink quite well upon release.

2016 La Petite Marquise  (St. Julien) 88
A medium bodied, fresh, crisp, classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon with a fresh finish of berries and cocoa, this wine gives us an entry-level sampling of the wines of Leoville Las Cases. You can drink this on release or age it a year or two. Only the second time this wine has been produced, Jean Hubert Delon considers Clos du Marquis a ‘unique’ wine, 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.

2015 La Petite Marquise  (St. Julien) 89
On the herbaceous, leafy side, you also find tobacco, cedar and a bit of cocoa to round things out. A medium bodied, fresh, crisp, classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, with sweet, ripe, bright fruits in the finish.

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
