La Petite Marquise du Clos du Marquis, Saint Julien, 2017

The Merlots are rich, the Cabernets Francs fine and elegant, and the Cabernets Sauvignons powerful and structured.  The tannic structure, powerful but very silky and elegant, stretches towards a particularly long and complex finish.

Grape Varieties: 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinous: 88-90 / 100
First, the 2017 La Petite Marquise is a very attractive, open-knit Saint-Julien to drink upon release for several years thereafter. Soft and supple in its construction, the Petite Marquise is a very pretty second wine. Blueberry jam, menthol, lavender and spice notes fill out the wine’s mid-weight frame effortlessly. This is quite lovely.

The wine comes from younger vines plus in this year some Merlot deselected from the Grand Vin, matured in 30% new oak. Then, it delivers quite a forthright bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry confit and cedar. Also you can feel,a hint of blood orange in the background. Then, the palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, rounded in texture, Last, quite fleshy for the 2017 vintage with a harmonious, smooth, almost plush finish driven by the Merlot. Delicious. Tasted twice and shows better the second time.

Decanter:
First, this has a little more Merlot than in the last two vintages. The cabernet suffered from the September rains. Consequently They used less in the Clos du Marquis itself.

Indeed, the frost did not affect the wine. Healthy yields at 37hl/ha. Even at this level, the St-Julien balance is on display. The Tannins are refined and soft. Overall the wine has a lot to say. It’s not powerful by any means, but those black fruits have form and energy – so it’s a buy for me. 30% new oak and 20% of overall production in this.

Food Pairing recommendations:Enjoy this wine with all types of classic meat dishes. It is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
