Tasted at the Zachys Bordeaux Confidential tasting on 5/14/15. I tasted this alongside the 2009 Chateau Giscours. I was quite impressed by this. Sweet tobacco and plums, medium-bodied, silky finish. This is a very good value.

(Château du Tertre) Dark red violet color; tart currant, olive nose; olive, herbaceous, tart currant palate; for early drinking; medium finish (55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot)
(Chateau du Tertre Margaux) Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Merlot 22%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Petit Verdot 8%. Restrained use of Merlot and plenty of Petit Verdot here. Bright and vibrant and creamy fruit here, dark but also very pure. There is a lovely flesh to the palate, with creamy and well integrated tannins. The fruit does have a slightly lush character, perfumed with violets, but underneath there is a ripe and firm backbone of tannin combined with good acidity. Really good potential here from the Giscours-du Tertre stable.
