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...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, February 2016

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...

The 2010 Marquis-de-Terme is a remarkable Bordeaux Blend that hails from the prestigious Margaux region in France. With its deep red color and enticing aromas, this wine is a true delight for the senses. The nose reveals an array of freshly picked strawberries and red plums, giving a bright and fresh impression from the start.

Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot, this blend showcases the classic Bordeaux varietals in perfect harmony. The wine has been aged in 50% new oak for 16 months, adding complexity and depth to the flavor profile.

On the palate, the Marquis-de-Terme truly shines. It is a high-toned wine that exudes excellent freshness and vibrancy. While the tannins are present, they are expected to mellow and integrate beautifully over time. With each sip, the wine reveals layers of ripe blackcurrant, cedar, boysenberry, and even a hint of shellfish. The palate is medium-bodied and well-balanced, with fully ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity that adds structure and finesse.

Notable wine critics have praised the 2010 Marquis-de-Terme. Neal Martin's Wine Journal awarded it an impressive score of 94, describing it as having good lift, focus, and excellent weight. Wine Spectator also recognized its allure, noting the melding of kirsch, dark plum, and loganberry flavors, along with a smoldering finish and good grip.

This wine has the potential to age gracefully over the years, with a recommended drinking window from 2015 through 2030. However, for those who can't wait, it can still be enjoyed now with its juicy fruit flavors and firm structure. Whether you choose to savor it today or cellar it for the future, the 2010 Marquis-de-Terme is a truly exceptional wine that showcases the best of Margaux's terroir and winemaking expertise.
