Bordeaux Red Blends from Margaux, Bordeaux, France
Sold Out 61.99
"The words sexy, seductive, and opulent do not characterize most wines of the 2004 Bordeaux vintage. However, they do describe Du Tertre's offering, an exotic, nearly flamboyant wine that seduces the taster with its forward display of earthy, herb-tinged cassis and black cherry fruit, round, soft, lush palate, and concentrated, fleshy finish. Even the barrel sample could have been drunk with great pleasure. Enjoy it upon release, and over the following 12-14 years." - Wine Advocate

The Chateau du Tertre is a thousand-year-old estate whose vineyard, stretching over 52 hectares, remains unchanged since 1855. During the 19th Century, the Chateau de Tertre wines rose to worldwide fame, especially thanks to the 1855 classification which established the Chateau as a Margaux Grand Cru Classe. 1n 1997, a Dutch businessman, Eric Albada Jelgersma bought the estate and invested in the large-scale overall restructuring, thus returning its former noble personality to the Chateau du Tertre.
