JS TOP 100 2013 Rank 2
"This shows beautiful aromas of flowers, raspberries and blackberries that follow through to a full body with ultra silky tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes. Best in 2018 or later."
Wine Enthusiast 95
"A great wine, packed with black currant fruits, sweet tannins and beautiful acidity. Made by the team at Léoville las Cases, this wine reveals an elegant, restrained structure, ripe and delicious fruit and a darker, tighter texture for aging."

"The Clos du Marquis demands some coaxing from the glass but it is worth persevering: blackberry, oyster shell, a hint of seaweed – a complex bouquet that entices you in. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh black fruit on the entry. It feels supple in the mouth, beautifully balanced towards the finish with dark cherries and plum lingering on the aftertaste. Excellent. Tasted November 2012."
