1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien
Described as “dazzling” by Robert Parker, this is an impressive St-Julien from an impressive vintage. Dark, brooding and structural, yet with voluptuous swathes of berry fruit and spice cupboard notes. Sweet oak-based notes come through alongside the rich core of fruit, but are balanced by a minerality and freshness that carry through onto a lingering finish.
