WTN: 2001 Clos du Marquis

2001 Clos du Marquis - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Julien (8/18/2013)
I've been slogging through a case of this wine, consistently finding it dull and oaky. Well this weekend the wine proved me wrong. Twelve years in there is balance, depth and fine drinkability. What had seemed a burden has become a delight, with subtle fruit married to earthy, leathery and cedary elements that just evoke Bordeaux for me. Damn my impatience.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
