About this wine:
 
Located on the tertre (French for "hillock" or "rising ground") from which it takes its name, Château du Tertre is a thousand-year-old estate in the Margaux appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. The vineyard, stretching over 52 hectares, has remained unchanged since the 1855 classification which established the Chateau as a Margaux Grand Cru Classe. It is planted to 43 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 % Merlot, 19 % Cabernet Franc and 5 % Petit Verdot, primarily old vines planted between 1961 and 1965.

Tasting Notes

It is of great sweetness and flavor. Silky and freshness are combined in this wine to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine. The aging potential of this great wine is between 8 and 20 years or even more for the most exceptional vintages.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"From the partner estate to Château Giscours, this wine is as elegant as you would expect. While it is structured, it also has ripe fruits, rich tannins and great potential. The dry and firm core of this wine will propel it forward. Drink from 2027." - Roger Voss (5/1/2021)

94 Points - James 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. Give it three or four years to soften and come together. Try after 2024." (Jan 2021)

94 Points - Wine 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. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2036." - JM (Mar 2021)
