Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose of the 2016 Marquis de Terme is earthy with damp soil and forest floor over a core of black and red currants, tobacco and bay leaves plus a waft of garrigue. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and softly textured with juicy fruit.

Structured, and with fine juicy fruit, this is a ripe wine that is also firm. It has a sense of style to it, elegant and bright. This will be for the medium term, ready in 10 years.

points on 100
Warm in feel, with dark plum, cassis and cherry compote flavors forming the core. Generally open in feel, with light cocoa, tobacco and alder notes adding spine and texture to offset the tasty fruit. Best from 2021 through 2031. 10,833 cases made.

Full, dense and chewy yet with a subtle minerally character, plenty of elegant dark fruit and a savory finish. Long.

A little sweaty on the nose. Round and easy on the palate. And then pretty chewy and drying. Not a runaway success.

Description

Located in the heart of the Margaux appellation, the origins of this château date back to the 15th century, but it is François de Péguilhan, Marquis de Terme, who will give its current name to the Château. In 1855 the wine of the property is ranked at 4th classified growth. The Sénéclauze family, owner since 1935, contributes to the development of the Château Marquis of term by numerous investments. 


Terroir 

The terroir is made up mainly of Margaux gravel, consisting of quartz and quartzite’s and is at least 4 meters thick. This is the soil that is best for Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil is more clayey in some parts, which is then more suited for Merlot. The variety of the terroir makes it possible to obtain a remarkable blend between Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The property ensures a precise work, by planning the management of every ground in the vineyard. The ecology is not forgotten either, since the Château participates in the fight for reasoned usage of pesticides and the respect of ecological balances.
