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

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.

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.

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... 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.

43% cabernet sauvignon 33% merlot 19% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Aged in 45% new oak. Aromas of chocolate and some cinnamon are framed by deep red fruit on the nose. Sweet cherry on the palate makes way for... 43% cabernet sauvignon 33% merlot 19% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Aged in 45% new oak. 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.
