Chateau du Tertre 2009

Chateau du Tertre 2009

Wine Enthusiast - 93/100
Wine Spectator - 91/100

Truffle, stone, espresso, blackberry, chocolate and menthol in the nose.  Sweet, supple and filled with plush ripe blackberry and plum, this well priced Margaux wine was produced from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot.

Du Tertre is situated on the tertre (in French means hillock or "rising ground") which is where the estate is located. With a history dating back to 1143, du Tertre is one of the oldest properties in the left bank of Bordeaux. Now owned by the Jelgersma family (who also owns Chateau Giscours), the 80 hectare vineyard is planted on one large single block - one of the largest single blocks in Margaux as well as in all of the Medoc. Du Tertre is one of the first Bordeaux wine producers to being using the cement Nomblot egg shaped, cement vats which are said to add more minerality to the wine.

We have a very limited batch of this wine.
