Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 du Tertre features cassis, red plums and spice box on the nose with herbs and earth nuances. The palate is medium-bodied, lean and soft with an earthy finish.

Partnered with Château Giscours as far as the wine-making team is concerned, this estate has created its own style. This wine shows a hint of initial aus-terity before opening out with rich fruits and struc-ture. It needs time and the wine will not be ready to drink before 2025.

Fresh damson plum, bitter cherry and savory notes are seamlessly layered together, with fresh tobacco and a flash of iron checking in on the pure, silky, persistent finish, where the slightly high-pitched fruit plays out nicely. Best from 2021 through 2032. 13,333 cases made.

Extremely deep and ripe on the nose with dried-berry, chocolate and plum aromas that follow through to a full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful finish. A rich and soft-tannin structure to the wine. Try after 2024.

A beautifully smooth, silky du Tertre in 2016, with an emphasis on subtle spicing, full of subtle but unmistakably exotic black chocolate, white pepper and cloves. Elegant and slightly restrained with generously silky tannins, a lovely wine.

Deep crimson. Rocky, cedary black fruit. Very definite mineral character along with the cassis. Unexpected combination of sweet fruit and the finesse of those pencil shavings. A little herbaceous and sweet/sour on the palate but full of life and energy. Long too. Needs time to meld.

2016 est un du Terte de référence, avec un jus énergique et un côté épicé qui lui convient bien. Un régal à mettre en cave pour les années à venir.

Nez de fruits rouges frais, petites baies noires, pointe de pruneau. Bouche fraîche, belle attaque, tannins élégants, belle longueur.

The 2016 du Tertre has really come together nicely. There is a sense of translucence in the 2016 that conveys finesse and refinement. Sage, mint, dried flowers and sweet herbs add layers of aromatic nuance as the sweet red cherry and plum fruit is pushed forward. I would prefer to drink this pleasant, easygoing Margaux over the next 10-15 years.

An outstanding Margaux with its classic perfume of sweet red fruits, dried flowers, balsam wood, and spice, the 2016 Château du Tertre is medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate. This is one of those wines that grows on you with time in the glass, and while it plays in the elegant, pretty end of the spectrum, it has wonderful fruit. It should keep nicely for 15 years or so.

Description

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.



The terroir

Discover this “beautiful Tertre d’Arsac” as 19th Century writers liked to call it. Here, the Margaux terroirs are there highest, with one of the most elevated gravel outcrops of the Médoc. The light and the sunshine wich bathe the vines protect them from the late spring frosts. A stream provides natural drainage, separating the two gravels outcrops, and cools the vines, thus giving them the cooler temperatures vital for thier development, protecting them both from excess water and drought.




The team

The Château du Tertre team take care to harness the development of each vine. Soil maintenance, leaf thinning and thinning-out allow the excellence of the terroir to be revealed. The advances of oenological progress are well under control here. The Château du Tertre opted for a wooden vats, with gravity fill. Then, in 2008, the estate installed concrete truncated cone tanks. The small capacity of these tanks enables the best plots to be kept to one side and vinified separately. The wine is then aged over 18 months in French oak barrels, of which half is renewed every year.
