    (Château du Tertre (Margaux)) This takes three hours to really open up, but it is worth the wait. In the glass this wine still has plenty of red pigment and a nice depth of colour, so there is certainly no great suggestion of age here. The nose is evolved, although it shows only early secondary development, nothing advanced or involved. There is even some really bright blackcurrant fruit behind it all still, a touch of cranberry too, although these fruits are not the most prominent aromas, as fresh scents of pencil lead, cedar, bay leaf and a little iron filing come to the fore. Lively flesh on the palate, not fat or modern but with enough flesh to fill out in the mouth, supported by plenty of savoury structural components, slightly bitter tannins which I like, and a lovely, fresh, stony structure underneath the weight of the wine. Overall this is very classically defined, pithy, and just at the start - for my palate - of its drinking window. It has decades ahead of it yet, though, as evinced by its tannin-infused and subtly fading finish. Very good indeed.

    (Chateau du Tertre Margaux) Delicious looking, glossy sheen to this wine. A serious, stylish nose, with notes of graphite. Slightly hard and austere tannins on the palate, but these underpin a luscious, creamily textured body of fruit. Good acidity completes the picture. Should age nicely.
