Tasted blind at the Bordeaux 2012 Southwold tasting. The 2012 Clos du Marquis has a very intense bouquet, the more fruit-driven of all the Saint Julien 2012s with layers of black cherries and cranberry fruit, an undercurrent of autumn leaves and cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition: smooth and very harmonious, quite intense on the entry and yet without that long sustain on the finish. That does not matter too much, because what comes before is very precise and pure, the class of the terroir evident from start to finish. Tasted January 2016.

This is a soulful Clos du Marquis with currants, blackberries and hints of earth. Full body, velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A fascinating earthy undertone. Better in 2018.
The 2012 Clos du Marquis is quite powerful in this vintage, with a larger amount of Cabernet Sauvignon than is the norm. There is good depth and persistence throughout, even if the 2012 is a bit lacking in excitement that could have taken it up another notch or two. The 2012 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This is a solid effort from Jean-Hubert Delon's Clos du Marquis, the sister Saint-Julien property to Léoville-Las-Cases.
