Chateau du Tertre Margaux
Description: The 2018 du Tertre was picked starting September 17 and finishing around October 12, and matured in 50% new oak, including recently introduced foudres, for around 14 months. It has a clean, precise, quite floral bouquet of black fruit infused with hints of lavender and iris flower; there is fine cohesion here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, the Merlot really lending flesh and roundness to the texture, and a fine bead of acidity. Touches of brown spice appear toward the fresh, engaging finish. This is a very pleasurable du Tertre in the making and I suspect it should drink well after just four or five years. From the partner estate to Château Giscours, this wine is as elegant as you would expect. While it is structured, it also has ripe fruits, rich tannins and great potential. The dry and firm core of this wine will propel it forward. Drink from 2027.
