Winemaker Notes

This Classified Growth in 1855 is the first label of Château du Tertre. It is of great sweetness and flavor. Silky and freshness are combined in this flask to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine. The aging potential of this great wine is between 8 and 20 years or even more for the most exceptional vintages.

Critical Acclaim

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
Under the same ownership as the top performing Château Giscours, this estate has established itself also as an impressive property. This vintage offers a dense structure and ripe black fruit flavor that confirms a success.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
JS 95
James Suckling

A tight and precise du Tertre with deep and dark fruit, as well as fresh flowers. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a clean and beautiful finish. The tannins are folding into the wine here. Rating: 94-95.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

A bright sanguine thread runs from start to finish here, lacing up the damson plum, savory, bitter cherry and black tea notes. Rating:91-94.

D 92
Decanter

A touch subdued on the nose, this is an extremely accomplished wine that's full of pleasure. It holds itself back for a few minutes and you can feel the concentration that comes from small berry size, from a yield of 36hl/ha - pretty good for 2018 considering the gravel and sand terroir will have suffered in the dry summer. But it opens in the glass to reveal bouncy tannins and a layer of slatey minerality that you push up against on the finish. Vinified at 25°C. 50% new oak. 14% Petit Verdot makes up the blend. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038. Barrel Sample: 92

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 du Tertre is a little reduced to begin, opening out to notions of baked plums, warm cassis and dried mulberries with hints of tar, chargrill and black pepper plus a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied with a firm, chewy frame, it has a good amount of baked berries and herbal flavors with a sage-laced finish.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

Chateau du Tertre, France
Chateau du Tertre Winery Image
The Chateau du Tertre is a thousand-year-old estate whose vineyard, stretching over 52 hectares, remains unchanged since 1855. During the 19th Century, the Chateau de Tertre wines rose to worldwide fame, especially thanks to the 1855 classification which established the Chateau as a Margaux Grand Cru Classe. 1n 1997, a Dutch businessman, Eric Albada Jelgersma bought the estate and invested in the large-scale overall restructuring, thus returning its former noble personality to the Chateau du Tertre.

Margaux Wine

Bordeaux, France

Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines from Margaux, the most inland appellation of the Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

Margaux’s gravel soils are the thinnest of the Médoc, making them most penetrable by vine roots—some reaching down over 23 feet for water. The best sites are said to be on gentle outcrops, or croupes, where more gravel facilitates good drainage.

The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification but it is nonetheless important in regards to history of the area. In 1855 the finest chateaux were deemed on the basis of reputation and trading price—at that time. In 1855, Chateau Margaux achieved first growth status, yet it has been Chateau Palmer (officially third growth from the 1855 classification) that has consistently outperformed others throughout the 20th century.

Chateau Margaux in top vintages is capable of producing red Cabernet Sauvignon based wines described as pure, intense, spell-binding, refined and profound with flavors and aromas of black currant, violets, roses, orange peel, black tea and incense.

Other top producers worthy of noting include Chateau Rauzan-Ségla, Lascombes, Brane-Cantenac, and d’Issan, among others.

The best wines of Margaux combine a deep ruby color with a polished structure, concentration and an unrivaled elegance.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
