2019 Château du Tertre: £318 IB per dozenSaturday, June 13
Owned by the same family as Giscours, du Tertre has similarly been ascending in recent times. Conversion to organic viticulture and a consequent focus on fruit quality, has contributed to du Tertre producing their best wine in years. Jane Anson describes it as "A beautifully elegant and expressive Margaux that has sappy fruit with clear salinity and minerality" (92 points).
2019 Château du Tertre, Margaux Cru Classé
“A beautifully elegant and expressive Margaux that has sappy fruit with clear salinity and minerality on the finish. Pretty serious in its structure but subtly so, it takes its time to unfurl and has an upward lift through the palate. Violet rim to the colour and the austerity speaks to energy that will help power it to long life. 6% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 92 Points." Jane Anson, Decanter
"The Grand Vin 2019 Château Du Tertre checks in as 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. This beautiful Margaux offers awesome notes of black raspberries, crushed flowers, sandalwood, spice, and a touch of bouquet garni. With medium to full-bodied richness, polished tannins, and a great finish, it's certainly the finest wine I've tasted from this domaine. It's going to evolve nicely over the coming two decades. 92-94 points." Jeb Dunnuck, Jun 2020
“A fantastic du Tertre with blackberries and blueberries. Very pure fruit character in general. Stone and tea undertones. It’s full-bodied with a tight, focused tannin backbone. Excellent structure. One of the best ever from here. So precise. A blend of 54% cabernet sauvignon, 27% merlot, 13% cabernet franc and 6% petit verdot. 95-96 Points." James Suckling
