RATINGS

95James Suckling

A rich and layered red with dark-berry and chocolate character. Full-bodied, round and juicy with supple tannins. Delicious finish of spices and walnuts. Generous yet fresh.

91Vinous / IWC

...bilberry and blackberry on the nose and a light graphite note on the palate.

90+ The Wine Advocate

...nose of baked cherries, blackberries and dried herbs with a waft of potpourri and fallen leaves. The medium-bodied palate is delicately styled with perfumed red and black fruits supported by firm, grainy tannins and it finishes with a refreshing herbal lift.

15.5Jancis Robinson

...nose and lots of leaf mulch on the palate. It certainly has character!

PRODUCER

Château du Tertre

Château du Tertre is a 52-acre estate in Margaux. Though it traces its history back nearly a thousand years, the estate became famous in the mid-19th century when the 1855 Bordeaux classification established the estate as a Margaux Grand Cru Classe. In 1997 it was bought by Eric Albada Jelgersma, a Dutch businessman. Robert M. Parker Jr. has noted that Jelgersma “is doing a splendid job rebuilding this estate and producing wines of higher and higher quality…du Tertre is a stylish, full-flavored, somewhat exotic Margaux…”

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Margaux

Margaux is one of Bordeaux’s most famous appellations and also one of its largest, with about 3,400 acres of vineyards. Located on the Left Bank of the Gironde River, Margaux has the greatest number of classified-growth châteaux (or crus classé) according to the 1855 classification. There are twenty-one crus classé, including the most famous estate, the first growth Château Margaux. The Margaux appellation includes vineyards around the village of Margaux and the villages of Arsac, Cantenac, d’Issan, Labarde and Soussans. Wines from the best Margaux châteaux and vintages are prized for their perfumey fragrance and elegant, silky mouthfeel. Margaux wines are predominately Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
