Chateau du Tertre Cotes du Rhone 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-93 Points, James Suckling: "A fantastic Tertre. One of the best in years with so much dark fruit, earth and light meat character. Decadent yet classy. Full body, polished tannins long finish." 90-92 Points, The Wine Advocate: "The Château du Tertre 2014 is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot picked from 26 September until 16 October. It has a slightly more opulent nose than the Giscours at the moment with red plum and crushed strawberry fruit, a slight gravel accent coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and more weight than the Giscours. It feels harmonious and fleshly, lightly spiced with a long tender finish. Alexandre van Beek has overseen a very commendable Margaux for the vintage and it should drink well over the next 15 to 20 years." Wine Spectator: "Pepper and savory flavors lead the way, followed by slightly brisk damson plum, cherry pit and iron notes. Not dense, but shows a good racy edge on the finish" Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2014 du Tertre is intense and powerful from the very first taste. Game, smoke, tobacco, leather and cedar all open up in the glass, adding considerable nuance to a core of dark red stone fruit. The 2014 is decidedly powerful and virile in style, with all of the elements in the right place. Bright acidity and firm tannins give the wine much of its energy and also suggest the 2014 will require at least medium-term aging to show at its best. The blend is equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot."
