Product Description:

"Created in 1902, the Clos du Marquis has its origins in the "Petit Clos" adjacent to the Chateau de Leoville, home of the Marquis de Las Cases. The Clos du Marquis comes from the great terroirs of the Saint-Julien appellation that were not part of the former Leoville estate.

These terroirs are located further west and surrounded by prestigious Crus Classes (Classified Growths) including Second Growths from the Saint- Julien and Pauillac appellations: Leoville Poyferre, Leoville Barton and Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. The Clos du Marquis thus displays typical Saint-Julien characteristics: structure, complexity, balance, distinction and great ageing potential." - Winery
