Château du Tertre

Margaux
5ième Grand Cru Classé
0,75
Red
From the same stable as Giscours, du Tertre has made a name for itself for consistently good quality and value. This is the highest amount of Cabernet used in the blend at 75% with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot making up the rest. Quite classic and stern on the nose, the wine opens up to reveal black and red fruits, a mineral undertone, precise tannins and a crispy, pure finish to end the wine on a clear note. One of the best vintages made here.
