Having some Clos du Marquis 2005
Started into this case last year when it was pretty primary and a little austere.
It's heading in the right direction but feels like a long way to develop.
Nose is vanilla, redcurrant, some balsamic
Palate is very focused on the primary fruit, not much development.
Redcurrant, cherry, some nice minerality, even a hint of witch hazel.
Fairly high acidity but tannins have softened a bit - glad to be having this with some food
Overall not bad, suspect you can do better for the price but will be interesting to see how this develops.
Seems 2005s have been fairly slow to come round...
Excuse the random "coasters" as we're redecorating our new house and have wildly varying plans on the tiling!
