ROBERT PARKER RATING: 91
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The superb second wine, the 2005 Clos du Marquis, reflects the utter brilliance of the 2005 grand vin. It boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of lead pencil, ripe cherries and black currants, and hints of earth and vanillin. Dense, chewy, fleshy, and full-bodied, this beauty will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should keep for 15-20.
STEVE TANZAR RATING: 90
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Good full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, mocha, coffee and spicy oak. Big, dry, broad and rich, with a chewy quality and noteworthy sweetness to the plummy flavor. This has more baby fat than the young 2006 but not quite as much detail or verve. Finishes quite broad, with major ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberry, blackberry, mineral and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate. This is chewy yet silky, with a long, long finish. Balanced and powerful.
The quality of the second label is unquestionably better than some of Bordeaux's famed in 1855 classification's second and third growths. This wine boasts a thick black/purple color as well as a huge, soaring set of aromatics consisting of cherry liqueur and black currants. The wine is thick, rich, and marvelously well balanced and long in mouth.
