Bright clean and pure with fresh inky flavors of blackcurrant cocoa violet and minerals. Finishes long with youthfully chewy but noble tannins and a repeating blackcurrant note. One of the best du Tertres in memory but although I like this wine's very pure cassis and mineral aromas and flavors I much prefer the exotic and flamboyant 2009 du Tertre because of its old-vine cabernet franc-derived floral perfume.

This is unique for the property as they usually include between 10% and 20% Cabernet Franc. This assemblage created a perfume of tobacco leaf fresh herb and blackberries. This elegant medium/full bodied is filled with sweet cassis ripe tannin floral sensations ending with soft textures and ample freshness in the finish.

Aromas of chocolate and some cinnamon are framed by deep red fruit on the nose. Sweet cherry on the palate makes way for freshness and good acidity. Although plenty of tannins it is voluptuous and round. Will evolve nicely for 15-20 years. Bravo.

The harvest started 28th September until the middle of October. Two samples the first at the chateau discounted as it had been open too long. The second at the UGC has a very obdurate nose tightly coiled and not as flamboyant as its peers but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Blackberry sous-bois tobacco and a touch of graphite good definition but it does not muster the same vivacity as Giscours. The palate is very tannic and a little austere a hardness to the tannins that will soften with barrel age nice grip taut and just a little peppery towards the dry finish. Very classic in style and incongruous to many of its peers but I think this could surprise a few people in bottle. I look forward to re-tasting it.

A plush and flattering style, with beguiling toast wound around a smoldering core of warm plum confiture, dark cherry and currant fruit, and buried hints of charcoal and espresso. Displays a polished finish overall. A hint of warm paving stone lurks in the background. Best from 2014 through 2026. – JM

Lots of blackberries and blueberries on the nose. Full body, with chewy tannins that are polished and ripe. Tar and mushroom undertones on the finish. Excellent Tertre. Try in 2018.

Ripe, dense and smooth from wood aging, this is a modern view of Margaux. At the same time, it shows a beautiful black-currant flavor from the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Petit Verdot adds great color.

Showing better from bottle than from barrel (which makes sense, given that I seemed to be in a minority when judging it from barrel), the 2010 du Tertre has a nice dark plum/garnet color, a slightly more evolved style than most Margaux, hints of cedar, licorice, black olive and black currant fruit with some flowers and subtle smoky wood in the background. Medium to full-bodied, round, generous and ripe, the words “sexy” and “opulent” come to mind when smelling and tasting this beautiful Margaux. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. - Robert M.

Blueish purple. Very ripe and concentrated with lots of acidity though perhaps not the absolute freshness of fruit that there is on some other Margaux 2010s. Dramatic wine!
