Neal Martin's Wine Journal, April 2011

The Marquis de Terme '10 has a well-defined bouquet with ripe blackcurrant cedar boysenberry and a touch of shellfish. Good lift and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fully ripe tannins very good weight and acidity...

Decanter, April 2021

Clearly Cabernet Sauvignon dominant in terms of its fruit character, this is juicy, floral, elegant and sculpted, with good extension through the palate. There are still lots of tannins here, even after 11 years but it is...

A wine with dried meats and berries on the nose and palate. Full body, beautiful fine tannins and a juicy finish finish. Chewy tannins. Still needs time to come together. Try in 2016.

Wine Spectator, March 2013

This is alluring, with the sappy feel of the kirsch, dark plum and loganberry fruit melded nicely to a charcoal spine. The long, smoldering finish reveals a singed iron note and features good grip. Should evolve nicely...

With a floral, dark red berry, espresso and thyme scented nose to start things off, the medium/full bodied wine keeps going, with its polished tannins, freshness and core of ripe dark cherries and cassis. Still young...

Wine Enthusiast, February 2013

Juicy, though a little on the lean side, this wine shows a strong flavor of black currant while its tannins are holding back. However, this vintage’s firm structure demonstrates the considerable investment in the chateau...

Alex Lallos of JJ Buckley describes the wine as having a "bright fresh nose" with notes of "newly picked strawberry and red plum." He highlights the wine's excellent freshness and high-toned nature. Lallos adds, "the tannins are there, but they should resolve nicely over the next few months in barrel," and expects the wine to develop into one of "nice complexity and elegance," awarding it a score of 92.

Martin praises its "well-defined bouquet" with "ripe blackcurrant, cedar, boysenberry, and a touch of shellfish." He notes its harmonious and cohesive finish, stating, "the oak seems to be totally in tune with the fruit," a marked improvement over the 2009 vintage. Martin concludes, "This is an excellent Marquis de Terme."

Wine Spectator's review, also giving a score of 92, describes the wine as "alluring," with a "sappy feel of the kirsch, dark plum, and loganberry fruit melded nicely to a charcoal spine." The review emphasizes the wine’s "long, smoldering finish" with a "singed iron note," suggesting it will evolve nicely and be best enjoyed from 2015 through 2030.

James Suckling, awarding the wine 92 points, notes its "dried meats and berries on the nose and palate" with a "full body, beautiful fine tannins, and a juicy finish." He mentions the wine's "chewy tannins" and recommends trying it in 2016.

Decanter's review, scoring the wine 93, highlights its "juicy, floral, elegant, and sculpted" profile, noting the dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in its fruit character. The wine retains "lots of tannins" even after 11 years and exudes a "peony fragrance" after some time in the glass. Decanter mentions that Julien Viaud took over as a consultant for this vintage.

Wine Enthusiast scores the wine 91, describing it as "juicy, though a little on the lean side," with a "strong flavor of black currant." The review notes the wine's firm structure, attributing it to recent investments in the chateau.

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com also gives the wine 91 points, highlighting its "floral, dark red berry, espresso, and thyme scented nose." The medium to full-bodied wine is noted for its "polished tannins, freshness, and core of ripe dark cherries and cassis," with a recommendation to give it another 5-7 years to develop.

Overall, the 2010 Marquis-de-Terme Bordeaux Blend receives high praise across multiple reviews for its complexity, elegance, and potential for further development.
