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

(From 2006 Vintage) Les Hauts du Tertre (Margaux AOC): This second wine of Château du Tertre comes from the selection of our youngest vines. The vinification and ageing benefit from the same care as the Grand Vin, Chateau du Tertre. You will love the character and refinement of this Margaux.

    Margaux....soil. full bodied, woody. love it! The nose reveals a predominance of aromas of red berries and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but remarkably subtle, with a delicate, velvety fruitiness overlying aromas of plum and black cherry. The finish is fine and slightly woody. This second wine from Château du Tertre is a sure fire Margaux, typical of its appellation, with a remarkably consistent quality recognised by all wine-lovers.

    (From 2003 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. (5th growth) Light sensuous notes, gently spicy with an underlying complexity. Harmonious, elegant, with delicious texture. Good length and fine tannins. Drink 2010-18.
