Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Modern style with bolder plum cassis and raspberry fruit flavors laced with roasted balsam wood and black tea. Nicely polished on the finish.-J.M.

The du Tertre is a blend of 10% Merlot 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc (a high percentage) picked from 8th to 27th September. I actually left my sample glass to unwind over 10 minutes at it made a huge difference. The nose offers ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit well integrated oak and some lovely orange blossom aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a plush rounded entry. It has slightly lower acidity than its peers but is very sensual with supple fresh strawberry and raspberry towards the finish. Very fine.

This is firm and tight with blueberry, wet earth and spice. Medium to full body and a medium finish. Needs to open.

43% cabernet sauvignon 33% merlot 19% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Aged for approximately 16 months in 45% new oak. Deep purple core with a beautiful garnet rim.

Deep purple core with a beautiful garnet rim. A strong bouquet with a touch of powdered sugar and mocha chocolate that nicely complement an alluring assortment of black fruit aromas. Big and soft on the palate with blackberry cassis and plum carrying over nicely through the finish. High in both acidity and tannin yet more or less in balance. Enjoy 2015-2025.
