2020 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

From a separate terroir from Las-Cases, but made in the same cellars, the 2020 Clos du Marquis has classic St-Julien character, with blackcurrent fruit, elegant tannins, and a long and mineral finish. A wine that's well worth securing En Primeur every year, the 2020 is no different.
