A brief history

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, at the very origin a separate vineyard to Leoville Las Cases whose first vintage was released in 1902.

The situation remains unchanged today as the vineyard producing the Clos du Marquis is located on top terroirs of the Saint Julien appellation, the main part being surrounded by such prestigious Classified Growths as Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Barton.
