2014 du Tertre (Margaux)

Uniqueness abounds at du Tertre, since they are the only chateau from the 1855 classification to have remained the same size and shape. This vintage is also unique for its high proportion (20%) of Cabernet Franc and 12% of Petit Verdot. The result is a perfumed, mouthfilling claret with supple, woven tannins and gorgeous red fruit. It has a long finish and will drink beautifully in the medium term. The wine sees 40% new oak and 40% of the vineyards are now biodynamic with the rest still in conversion. (CW 02/04/15)

Neal Martin

The Château du Tertre 2014 is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot picked from 26 September until 16 October. It has a slightly more opulent nose than the Giscours at the moment with red plum and crushed strawberry fruit, a slight gravel accent coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and more weight than the Giscours. It feels harmonious and fleshly, lightly spiced with a long tender finish. Alexandre van Beek has overseen a very commendable Margaux for the vintage and it should drink well over the next 15 to 20 years. 90-92 points

With one of the most elevated percentages of Petit Verdot in the Médoc, this wine ought to be dense and compact, but it`s much more elegant and refreshing than that. Smooth, polished and refreshing, with medium weight fruit and an attractive finish. 91 points
