The vine may have a longer history in the eastern Mediterranean, but no country in the modern world is more closely associated with wine than France. Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy; these French regions have become synonymous with the styles of wine to which they are home. And those three are only the most famous in a country where nearly every region produces its own highly individual wine varietals or styles. At Marquis we are apologetically Francophilic, and we are happy to offer you many French wines not available anywhere else in B.C.

Alain Gueneau 2018 Sancerre "La Guiberte" 750ml


Pale yellow in colour with green and golden highlights. The first smell is discreet with herbaceous hints (nettle, tomato leaves, and menthol). Then the nose reveals notes of elder blossom, citronella, and thyme. Frank in attack, the palate refreshes...

Beaucastel 2017 Coudoulet Rouge Cotes du Rhone 750ml


Juicy and direct, with a core of blackberry and plum fruit, laced with a singed alder thread and backed by a dusting of garrigue on the finish, which reveals a nice tug of dark earth. Should open up with some cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028. 5,000...

Benjamin Leroux 2016 Bourgogne Aligote 750ml


The 2016 Bourgogne Aligoté is a new addition to the range and comes from old vines. Benjamin had a lot of empty barrels and so he thought it would be a good opportunity to “park” some Aligoté instead of risking the barrels...

Bernard Defaix 2018 Petit Chablis 750ml


The 2018 Petit Chablis is laced with attractive floral, citrus and orchard fruit notes. There is good energy, especially for the year, but the finish is just a touch dry. For that reason, I would prefer to drink it over the next 2-3 years. Score: 88...

Brocard 2018 Chablis "Montmains" 1er Cru 750ml


The 2018 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is rich and textured in the glass, owing in part to a vinfication and aging regime that took place in equal parts tank and cask. Lemon confit, pear and lightly honeyed notes give the 2018 striking textural richness and...
