Chateau du Tertre 2014
€32,50 incl BTW: €39,33
|Type of Wine||
The 2014 Du Tertre has a light blackberry and raspberry scented bouquet with a noticeable undergrowth element that I was not anticipating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is not enormous weight or body here, but it is certainly balanced with neatly integrated oak towards the poised finish. Probably an earlier-drinking Margaux to enjoy over the next 10-12 years. Maybe I was just expecting a little more substance in view of its showing in barrel, nevertheless it is still a respectable 2014 from Alexandre van Beek and his team.
A little bit shy on the nose, but the balance of good concentration and powdery tannins creates a creamy impression that extends through the long finish — one that’s already smooth enough to give a lot of pleasure.
