Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 La Petite Marquise sings of redcurrants, tobacco and black raspberries with touches of forest floor, bay leaves and dusty soil. Medium-bodied and finely grained on the palate, it has an approachable frame and loads of red and black fruits on offer with an earth-laced finish.
Drink Date: 2019 - 2029

As new young vines were coming into production on the Clos du Marquis vineyard, and in the aim of preserving its acclaimed quality, a decision was made to create its own second wine. Produced from grapes grown on the superb Clos du Marquis terroirs, La Petite Marquise shows great subtlety and refinement. With its harmonious expression and delicate tannic structure, this wine is elegantly seductive and enchanting. To be enjoyed relatively young due to the dominance of Merlot in the blend.

The year 2016 started off with the water tables full, thanks to the heavy rainfall from January to March. Three difficult months for the vineyard workers but which saved the day
for this vintage! The mild temperatures in March ensured an early budburst but the colder, rainy mornings in April slowed down the growth cycle. During the first two weeks of August, the colour change was short and even. The grapes developed in radiant, dry weather conditions. Light showers appeared in mid-September to re-boost the ripening process on the terroirs offering less water retention, thus perfecting the maturation of the tannins. The absolutely perfect weather conditions during harvest time allowed us to pick grapes boasting remarkable quality.
