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.
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.
