RATINGS

94James Suckling

Fragrant blackberries married to moderate vanilla oak on the nose. Then cue an elegant, moderately tannic palate with some real sophistication. What a seductive wine...long clean, dry and mineral finish...

94Wine Enthusiast

This is a ripe, juicy wine, showing the improvements at this potentially fine estate. Dense tannins and succulent fruit come together to give a wine that is both structured and complex. The black-currant and berry flavors are underlined with a ripe structure.

92The Wine Advocate

...offers up cassis, black cherries and plums on the nose with touches of garrigue, lavender and Provence herbs. The medium-bodied palate offers great fruit concentration with savory accents and ripe, grainy tannins plus plenty of freshness, finishing earthy.

92Wine Spectator

Brambly, juicy and energetic, with anise, plum cake and blackberry compote notes inlaid with brambly tannins. A light black tea streak adds nuance on the finish.

15Jancis Robinson

Sweet, perfumed. Dry finish but with good energy.

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.

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.
