External Reviews for Chateau du Tertre Margaux
A beautiful Margaux made in a flashy, flamboyant style, Du Tertre will repay earlier drinking than many of the big 2005 Medocs. It exhibits a dark saturated purple color, beautiful aromas of licorice-... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Du Tertre 750ml
Even in the highly acclaimed 2005 vintage, Du Tertre remains under most consumer's radar. Made by essentially the same winemaking team as Giscours, this cuvee exhibits a dense purple color, followed by earthy, truffle, smoky blackberry, floral, and cassis aromas. It is a beautifully pure, medium to full-bodied wine with abundant but sweet tannin, fine opulence, a multilayered texture, and a long finish that is neither aggressive nor astringent. Cellar it for another 3-4 years, and consume it over the following 20-25.
Aromatic, with floral, berry and cherry character. Medium-bodied, with coffee bean, lightly toasted oak and currant, berry aftertaste. Little austere. Needs time. Better than previously reviewed. Best after 2009.
Deep red-ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of mocha, chocolate and minerals. Quite sweet and creamy in the mouth, with dense flavors of plum and coffee liqueur. A big, broad, thick wine, at once smoother and more vibrant than the 2004 but a bit inscrutable today. Finishes fairly tannic but with noteworthy persistence. Seemed to come into harmony as it opened in the glass.
Aromas of plums and strawberries follow through to a medium-bodied palate with light tannins. Fresh finish. Drink now.
Slightly funky with ripe fruit and toasted oak. Smoky. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. I like this a lot still even though its a little earthy and rustic. Best after 2009. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Du Tertre 6000ml
Red/purple in the middle, but gets thin far from the edge. Green, herbaceous nose. Not very deep or complex on the palate. Decent fruit, although it remains one-dimensional. The tannins are well integrated and very approachable. This one can be enjoy... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Du Tertre 3000ml
