With its high proportion of old Merlot balanced by young Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has both richness and black-currant freshness. Its structure and the tannins are poised and elegant. Drink from 2022.

The 2017 La Petite Marquise du Clos du Marquis, which comes from younger vines plus in this year some Merlot deselected from the Grand Vin, was matured in 30% new oak. It delivers quite a forthright bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry confit and cedar, a hint of blood orange in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, rounded in texture, quite fleshy for the 2017 vintage with a harmonious, smooth, almost plush finish driven by the Merlot. Delicious. Tasted twice and shows better the second time.

Rated 90 by Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 La Petite Marquise is outstanding and has a pretty, pure, precise style that’s already drinking nicely. Based on 74% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a touch of blue fruit as well as ample black cherry, spring flowers, and a touch of graphite on the nose. Medium-bodied, balanced, and with a sense of elegance and purity as well as solid tannins, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years.

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

Bordeaux red wines are widely regarded as being the finest red wines produced anywhere in the world, regularly topping awards lists and generally being amongst the most sought after and collectable bottles available. The secret to their success and their particularly memorable and refined characteristics is the fact that Bordeaux red wines are made from a blend of grape varietals, most commonly from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, helped by a touch of Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc. The other two key Bordeaux grape varietals which are also used in the blend of many of these excellent wines are Malbec and Carménere, although it is becoming less common to see these in use today. The art of blending primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varietals is something which has been much imitated around the world, as it produces a wonderfully balanced, rounded yet massively complex and flavorful wine, ideal for oak aging The acid and tannin levels in each of these grape varietals is balanced and tempered by the blend, and generations of expertise has gone into the careful selection and cultivation of such quality grapes.

Region: Bordeaux

Of all the wine regions in France, the mostly highly esteemed and famous is surely Bordeaux. Most commonly associated with their superb examples of blended red wines, usually made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot varietals, Bordeaux consistently demonstrates that their mix of traditional and modern wine-making styles is the recipe for fame and success. The region benefits greatly from its humid climate, and the fact that its clay and gravel based soils are perfect for growing the fine grape varietals which flourish there. The region is split into quite distinct sub-regions, with the finest generally believed to be the Left Bank and the Médoc region, where many of the most well known chateaux are based and produce their wonderful red and white wines.
