RATINGS

95Wine Enthusiast

...elegant as you would expect. While it is structured, it also has ripe fruits, rich tannins and great potential.

94Wine Spectator

Very seductive, with warmed plum sauce, cassis and raspberry confiture flavors stitched together with singed sandalwood and light mineral notes. Ends with a velvety edge while a flash of alder darts in the background.

94James Suckling

Aromas of meat and dark berries with some dried flowers. It’s full-bodied with round, chewy tannins and a juicy finish with some dark chocolate.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...solid, offering an attractive bouquet of red and black fruits, vanilla bean, dried flowers, balsam...and sandalwood...beautifully complex, has medium-bodied richness, moderate tannins, and a forward, charming, already delicious style...

90The Wine Advocate

...delivers a good intensity of stewed black plums, kirsch and black raspberry notes, plus hints of dried Provence herbs, tobacco leaf and cedar chest...medium-bodied palate offers plenty of red and black fruit preserves flavors with a soft texture and loads of freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.

90Vinous / IWC

...intense bouquet of iris and pencil lead aromas infusing the black fruit, and a touch of ash in the background...palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins on the entry, quite firm and earthy, with just a little dryness on the graphite-tinged finish.

15Jancis Robinson

Juicy, ripe. Cherry fruit. Very flattering...

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

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.
