2005-Clos du Marquis

Saint Julien, Bordeaux, France

"Clo dew Markee"

The second label (wine lots not used in the master blend of the prestige label) of Ducru Beaucaillou (beautiful pebbles) represents one of the true bargain finds in Bordeaux in excellent vintages like this.  The vineyards lie right along the river bank of the Gironde river which deposited yards of fertile river silt laden with stone pebbles.  This combination provides a distinctive environment to yield consistently tasty and mellow wines.  In 2005 the constellations aligned perfectly to render a dramatically vibrant and velvety masterpiece rarely found at this price.  Incredibly civilized partner with veal, pork, game birds, gamey seafood and mild sausages or ham after it has been decanted for 1+ hour. Best 2016 – 2025.
