Chateau du Tertre Les Hauts du Tertre Margaux

Wine Details





Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) This Classified Growth in 1855 is the first label of Château 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.

    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.

    (2006 Vintage) Full red-ruby. Aromas of dark berries, licorice and bitter chocolate, with hints of herbs and mint. Sweet on entry, then primary in the middle, even a bit inky and unformed. But this boasts a surprisingly pliant texture and finishes with rather soft, dusty tannins. Will elevage bring more grip?

    (2003 Vintage) Good full red. Roasted currant, plum jam and chocolate on the nose, with complicating notes of leather and meat. Sweet on entry, then a bit roasted in the middle; not particularly complex but offers good fruit and balance. Finishes with dusty tannins and good length.
