來自超有名二級酒莊李維拉斯卡堡（Leoville Las Cases）的二軍酒!!! 買到賺到又能品好酒，好機會快把握喔~~~
這款酒的名稱在20世紀初期開墾葡萄園時就被創立了，當時受到在李維堡（Château de Léoville）旁的Petit Clos影響。侯爵園（Clos du Marquis）原本是德龍集團（Domaines Delon）的一個歷史品牌，和在1902年推出首支酒款的李維拉斯卡堡各自獨立。
建立這個品牌是為了要區別兩個完全不同的風土特質。這樣的情況到現在依然不變，侯爵園的葡萄園位於聖朱里安產區（Saint Julien）的最頂端，周圍則是列級莊園龍博菲酒莊（Léoville Poyferré）和李維巴頓堡（Léoville Barton）。
This is the second label of the famous second growth Leoville Las Cases!!
The name of this wine, created at the beginning of the 20th century when the vineyard was planted, was inspired by the Petit Clos adjacent to the Château de Léoville, residence of the Marquis de Las Cases. Clos du Marquis is a historical brand by the Domaines Delon, a separate vineyard to Leoville Las Cases whose first vintage was released in 1902.
The creation of this brand was to allow a clear identification of two completely distinct terroirs. The situation remains unchanged today as the vineyard producing the Clos du Marquis is located on top terroirs of the Saint Julien appellation, surrounded by such prestigious Classified Growths as Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Barton.
The vines stretch over about 45 hectares (111 acres) with an average age of thirty years. The presence of organic matter in the top soil, due to the presence of a forest on this land in the past, brings a typical Saint-Julien style to the Clos du Marquis. The grapes ripen later in this vineyard than in the Enclos, the latter being warmed by the micro-climate of the nearby Gironde river.
The summer of 1995 brought high temperatures and a good drought, favourable for the perfect ripening of the grapes. The ideal conditions continued during harvest time, ensuring the grapes remained nice and healthy through to the last bunch picked. The nose shows loads of plum, spice and meat aromas, as well as hints of licorice. It's full-bodied, with firm, yet velvety textured tannins. It's big and rounded.
