Chateau Leoville Las Cases La Petite Marquise du Clos du Marquis 2019
Shows steeped plum, boysenberry and blackberry notes that form the core, with enough depth to absorb the apple wood and mesquite notes that line it, while a taut iron note drives the finish. Features lively savory and tobacco notes that add energy through the finish. A bit rigid in terms of structure, but that's the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2038.
The Clos du Marquis is a separate part of the Leoville las Cases estate. The second wine, this is ripe, densely rich & fruity, with fine lines of acidity & spice. It will be ready to drink from 2022.
