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
Truly wonderful wine from Château du Tertre ( not a Grand Cru ) . — 8 days ago
Pleasantly surprised as I don’t usually like organic wine. Not too much funk. Very similar to a Sauvignon Blanc - fruits, acid, lemon, apple, honey, some oak. Even had it a day or two old as Kenlee couldn’t finish his bottle after passing out on the couch… — a month 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. — a month ago
