Clos du Marquis, Saint-Julien 2019

RRP £35

The deep nose conveys violets and dark fruit, and I cannot recall a more positive tasting experience of this wine at this youthful stage. ‘We want this to be a veritable ‘premier vin’ to match the classified growths,’ says the estate’s Florent Genty. The blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc reveals graphite and silex, with a velvety – even creamy – texture. Long finish. 50% new oak.
