Truly wonderful wine from Château du Tertre ( not a Grand Cru ) . — 12 days ago
Nicely balanced Sauternes, with honey, flowers and golden raisins on the nose and restrained sweetness on the palate that lingers pleasantly. A little lightweight compared to other Sauternes I’ve had, but lighter and balanced beats heavier and cloying all day long. Enjoyed the 2017 vintage with contraband foie gras on New Year’s Day. — 7 months ago

On the dry side for a Calvados of this age, this is evocative of a hyperconcentrated Norman cider, with everything from baking spice and apple pie to the barnyard funk of an Etienne DuPont. Apple and sour horse pussy. 👀 A cerebral one. — 2 months ago
2008 vintage. Bernaleau family (also owners of Haut-Médoc Château de Braude and Moulis Château Galland). Situated in Arsac between Château du Tertre and Château d'Arsac. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (around 70%) with Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Great effort in a difficult vintage. Dark red with orangy rim. Cassis, flowers and cedar wood. Textbook elegant Margaux. Drinking beautifully without the harsh tannin that characterises many 2008s. Lovely and nice value. — 3 months ago
Opened at home with Jeff on a three day weekend. Not sure where it was purchased but Vivino said it’s ¥8000. It is very yummy. Refined, classic French wine. Very good, fruity nose, long finish. Blackberry, raspberry, berry flavors. Sold @ Rakuten ¥8600.
