RATINGS

90Stephen Tanzer

Sexy, syrah-like aromas of blackberry, violet, smoke, game and underbrush. Densely packed and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its crushed berry flavors. A very rich and sweet style of Margaux...

88-91Robert M. Parker Jr.

...big, sweet bouquet of licorice, seaweed, black currants, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, a rich, concentrated mouthfeel, and a long, layered finish...

PRODUCER

Château Marquis-de-Terme

Château Marquis-de-Terme is a Fourth Growth estate in the Margaux appellation. In the 17th century it was part of the large Rauzan estate owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan, but since then it has been divided many times. The estate today includes 100 acres of vineyards and is owned by the Sénéclauze family. Wine writers have noted that since the late 1980s this estate has been renovated, updated and thoroughly reinvigorated and recent vintages have impressed reviewers, who have often awarded the recent vintages scores in the low 90s. Vinous wrote: “…Marquis-de-Terme has made serious strides in quality over the last few years. This is an estate to watch.” M de Marquis de Terme is the second label and 48,000 bottles are produced annually.

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.
