Finally: Bordeaux 2015 In Bottle (Jul 2019)

The 2015 Clos du Marquis has a fine blackberry and briary scented bouquet with discreet touches of graphite. The palate is simple with sharp acidity, fresh and nicely focused. The cedar and mint-tinged finish lingers in the mouth. This does not show quite as well compared to just after bottling, but it is just a matter of time. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
