2019 Château du Tertre, Cru Classé Margaux

Château du Tertre is Margaux. Soft, elegant, and almost comforting, with tannins that are super fine with a lovely weight of perfectly ripe and balanced fruit. Creamy, plump and fun but with finesse, this is really such a good buy at the price. And it will provide excellent early drinking: it should be ready to pop a cork in 2025, but will last another 15 years or more.”

TASTING NOTES

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.

92/100

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.
