2012 Marquis de Terme, Margaux
One of the wines that showed great promise in 2012, this is deliciously rich, with all the elegance of Margaux and that extra firm tannic background. Blackberry and juicy red fruits balance well with the structure. Drink from 2019. (RV)
Very pretty fruit here with blueberries and wet earth. Full body, with velvety tannins and a delicious finish. Pretty acidity too.
Well-focused, with an alder frame harnessing the core of crushed plum, currant preserves and raspberry coulis. Hints of bay leaf and tobacco line the fleshy finish. Best from 2016 through 2022. 6,625 cases made. (JM)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A soft, fruit-forward style of wine from Marquis de Terme, this blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with an important percentage of Merlot, but also some Petit Verdot. It has a dense ruby/purple color, medium to full body, and notes of licorice, graphite, and blue and red fruits. Drink it over the next 15+ years. (RP)
