This was at the end of its drinking life but still enjoyable. Fruit still present and very smooth. My study smelled like a cherry orchard when I opened it. Saved half the bottle for the next night and it was even better. I have a 2015 also but will drink that sooner I think. Love the Citran though. Bought this with Dad in St. Pierre back in 2014. Good memories!

After slumbering for many years in the cellar this beauty has gone gently into the good night. What a beautiful, sublime wine. This is the 2nd wine for Chateau Tertre and it did not disappoint. Beautiful brick red in colour with no discernible tannins. It opened up right away giving off charcoal, Pepsi and cherry on the nose with huge dark fruit (cherries) and dirt on the palate with hints of petrol and brambles on the palate. Drink up, it wont get any better. Lovely wine!

What a special bottle of wine, BCs finest IMHO! Intense dark fruit flavours on the nose and palate. Love the dirt flavour and rough leather with barnyard on the palate. Long, sumptuous finish! As always, a great drop of wine with a successful partnership between BC and France.

Bought this on a school trip to Quebec City 3 years ago and just popped the cork this evening. Delicious spicy nose and smooth on the palate make for a great wine. Love that it is from Provence also, they dont make that many reds. Will buy again for 25 dollars.

A nice, interesting bottle of wine purchased in 2014 in St. Pierre et Miquelon with 2018 being the year Dad and I decided to drink it. Took a little time to open up but was def worth the price/time in the cellar. Merry Christmas everyone!

The highest score I have ever given a wine I owned before drinking it. Simply fabulous. Opulent, decadent and bursting with dark fruit flavours on the nose and palate. Zero tannins and so, so smooth. It killed me to consume the last drop. Bravo!

Tart and a little thin on the palate. I enjoyed the cloud berries and damsons on the palate. Fleeting finish. Would have again, love the vineyard and Pete is super.

Spectacular wine that is drinking perfectly now. Classic Bordeaux with haunting notes of dark cherries, dirt and wood smoke on the nose. Big, meaty body with distinct charcoal and graphite notes. Fabulous and well worth the wait!
