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…”
