2016 Chateau du Tertre, 5th Growth Margaux (6 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux St. Emilion

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.

Vinous

The 2016 du Tertre has a refined bouquet of black fruit infused with loamy, sous-bois scents, gradually evolving more intensity with aeration. The medium-bodied palate is well-defined, with lithe tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a detailed, quite precise finish. This just requires a couple more years in bottle. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting.

Vinous

The 2016 du Tertre has a nose of fragrant fruit, more red than black, featuring raspberry and wild strawberry mixed with graphite and light cedar aromas. The harmonious, focused palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and good mineralité. This might not have as much substance as its Margaux peers, but it feels very sustained in the mouth.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

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.
