  • 91 Robert Parker Wine Advocate

    This 125-acre vineyard is beautifully situated in the southern sector of the appellation of Margaux. Dense ruby/purple, with sweet cassis fruit, Du Tertres 2012 has a perfumed, elegant, lush, velvety-textured mouthfeel and impressive purity and depth. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Robert M. Parker, Jr. – 30/04/2015

  • 91 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

    “Dark, bright ruby. Sexy, very fresh aromas of blueberry, raspberry, red licorice and sweet spices are accented by a penetratingly pure violet topnote. Quite bracing and fresh on the palate, with lovely ripe, harmonious acidity lifting and extending the wonderfully pure red cherry and blackcurrant flavors through a long, penetrating finish. This is a superb effort by Du Tertre.” (6/30/2013)

  • 90 James Suckling

    Intense nose of cassis and cherries with cedar notes. Full body, silky tannins, good acidity and a long, fruity finish. A little hard now but will open with bottle age. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 27% merlot, 11% cabernet franc and 7% petit verdot. Drink from 2017. (2/15/2015)

  • 90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    Owned by the proprietors of Giscours, the 2012 Du Tertre is marginally richer and more textured than that cuvee. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of licorice, charcoal, red and black currants, forest floor and background oak. Medium-bodied, well-made and pure with soft tannins and low acidity, it can be drunk over the next 10-12 years. (Robert Parker – Wine Advocate – Apr 2013)

  • 89 Wine Spectator

    Fresh, with punch to the red currant and damson plum fruit, backed by a sleek, modestly toasted finish. A touch shy on depth overall, but well-rendered. (James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, April 8 2013)
