Château du Tertre 2015

Bordeaux - Margaux - Red - 13.5° Château du Tertre Château du Tertre 2015 1021/15
  • Parker : 91-93

Château du Tertre and its 80-hectare estate stand on the crest of the Tertre hill, the highest point in the Margaux appellation. Dating from the 12th century, this thousand-year-old property has passed through many illustrious hands, including those of Thomas de Montaigne, Pierre Mitchell and Henri de Koenigswater. The wines of du Tertre became world-famous in the 19th century, when the 1855 Classification bestowed "Grand Cru Classé" status upon the estate. Since then, the 52-hectare vineyards had remained untouched, until in 1997. Eric Albada Jelgersma, the present owner, invested heavily to resurrect the estate, combining technology with tradition. The investments he has made at the vineyards and cellars made the estate the famous great growth it is today

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 du Tertre is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% each of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, picked 9 September until 9 October, matured in around 47% new oak. The nose is impressive, more so than the 2014 twelve months ago with tightly-wound but very focused raspberry, cranberry and iodine aromas that gently unfurl with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure, impressive depth, a du Tertre with more substance and body than recent vintages. There is precision with satisfying length on the cedar and pencil lead finish. Alexandre Van Beek might have produced his best du Tertre to date.
