Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) This Classified Growth in 1855 is the first label of Ch√Ęteau du Tertre. It is of great sweetness and flavour. Silky and freshness are combined in this flask 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.

Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated color and extraction, quite meaty and a bit four-square at the moment, fine depth of fruit, but lacks some fragrance and freshness.

    It is easy to understand the controversy that follows this wine as even our tasters were split in their opinions. We agree that it is what the pundits would call "new school" with its oaky riches and its plump early feel on the palate, and we think it succeeds well in that vein, but the minority view is that the mix of plump center and hard shell is disconcerting. We say, "Age it". Local wines in this come around, and so will this one.
