Un beau nez très bordelais qui évolue plus le temps passe en carafe. Couleur rouge foncée d bonne intensité. Belle rondeur en bouche avec une finale moyennement intense. Une belle surprise pour moi, un beau millésime à boire maintenant ou d'ici les 5-7 années
Unmistakable Bordeaux - Held its own over a few days. Medium bodied. Short to medium length. Brick color has started to appeal. Fairly tannic and acidic - although well balanced with the fruit in my view. Drink now or over the next five years.
Found an unaccounted for bottle in the cellar, fruit on the nose seems a touch more forward, with vanilla, cedar, graphite and dark fruit, palate is a little austere with bitter tannins, feel this was better younger or right now is in a difficult phase of evolution
Tasted in double-blind fashion, this deep garnet wine showed an herbal edge throughout. Green olive and bell pepper elements are in the forefront, with black currant fruit lurking in the background on both the nose and palate. The wine is medium-bodied, has medium acidity and fairly light tannins at this point. The alcohol is well-integrated and the middle palate is solid. Concluding with a medium-length, tart finish, this iteration of du Tertre fails to provide the "joy factor" that this château usually delivers. Drink now-2019.

(Chateau du Tertre (Margaux)) A suggestion of deeper fruit here than its Giscours stablemate, rather solid with a slightly caramelly edge suggestive of oak. Rather deeply feral as well. A good substance on entry, rather cool but with a solid feel to it. More flesh in the middle, some perfume too, an attractive wine. Quite a broad substance showing with time, not the most vigorous but there is structure and lift here. If it comes together this could drink very nicely.
(Chateau du Tertre Margaux) Another Margaux with plenty of character on the nose, which shows some dense fruit and savoury oak. Supple, fleshy, soft, perhaps rather diffuse, although with a lot of substance too. Appealing texture, and flavours of spiced fruit. Good acids, although not the most vigorous of wines, but it holds together fairly well. But I certainly prefer the Giscours.
(Chateau du Tertre Margaux) Very open, fresh and bright red fruits on the nose. The palate is a little light in style, but has a little hint of cream on the edge. Midweight overall, a touch delicate, light-footed, subtle, with fine, ripe tannins. Fresh acidity. This is pretty good wine.
