"Inky dark ruby with deep purple hues. An open bouquet with aromas of ripe red and black berries with notes of oak and vanilla. A dynamic wine with finesse and elegance with youthful fruit and a silky texture." — 4 months ago
Very Nice margaux. A strong and powerfull vintage makes it difficult during the first hours after its opening but then it really delivers what you would expect from à margaux : Black cherry, a bit of oak, great acidity and quite a lentgh for a second wine. — a month ago
2020 vintage. The last vintage for this wine as it was bought from the Bécot family ( owners of Beauséjour-Bécot) by the owners of Haut-Brion in 2021. It will be incorporated into Château Quintus (which is a merger of 3 estates: Tertre-Daugay, L'Arrosée and Grand-Pontet). Many Saint-Emilion estates disappeared, incorporated into other estates, some very good wines sadly disappeared like Curé Bon La Madeleine (now into Canon), Cadet-Piola (now into Soutard) and so on. The fact that Grand Cru Classés can legally be incorporated into Premier Grands Crus Classés tells you that you have to take the classification with more than a grain of salt. A bit shy on the nose, even after a few hours. Medium-bodied, nice value for a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé. — 2 months ago
Full body, velvety, lightly tannic finish. Drinks like a California cab. Great Bordeaux. $14.99 at TJ’s. — 8 months ago
There is something to be said about buying and holding. Just an average Bordeaux from a good vintage just sitting around for 20 years waiting to be tasted. The tannins washed away revealing a subtle and sexy wine with spicy beauty. This is the reason why I buy I hold. It usually works in my favor — a month ago
Zacht van smaak met droge afdronk. Lekker wijntje! — 3 months ago
On the nose, this felt like a clean black current... On the palate, black fruit, cola, a touch of greens there too, but if anything this paces the other way with plenty of ripeness... Again clean without any funk. Medium finish. — 3 months ago

The night before last we open the 2001 Château du Tertre Margaux Bordeaux blend. This blend is 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
On the nose are notes of fruit although faint of bkack cherry, blackberry, brambles, licorice, cigar box, roses, oak, woody notes, forest floor and earthy notes
On the palate are notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black pepper, worn leather, cigar tobacco, forest floor and earth.
This wine is medium to full bodied smooth velvety mouthfeel medium acidity and medium to medium+ powdery resolved tannins that still has a long dark earthy worn leather finish. I hope everyone is doing well going into the weekend. Please enjoy yourselves with family and friends. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 21 days ago
