Wine Spectator Review:
This is textbook Margaux, with a supple, velvety feel and a stylish core of plum, red currant and black cherry fruit laced with perfumy spice and followed by lightly dusty tannins. Score range 90-93.
Compared to the Giscours, the du Tertre is not quite as expressive on the nose at the moment. It has very fine definition, but the black, tobacco-tinged fruit are tightly coiled and not wanting to come out to play today. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tension on the entry. It promises a crescendo that is not quite realized at the moment, however, that will surely arrive with time. A keeper. Neal Martin
