2018 du Tertre, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407946 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From the partner estate to Château Giscours, this wine is as elegant as you would expect. While it is structured, it also has ripe fruits, rich tannins and great potential. The dry and firm core of this wine will propel it forward. Drink from 2027. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of meat and dark berries with some dried flowers. It’s full-bodied with round, chewy tannins and a juicy finish with some dark chocolate. Give it three or four years to soften and come together. Try after 2024. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very seductive, with warmed plum sauce, cassis and raspberry confiture flavors stitched together with singed sandalwood and light mineral notes. Ends with a velvety edge while a flash of alder darts in the background. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Brushed grilled cedar edge on the nose here, deep silky texture and lots of lovely fruit. Touches of heat on the finish but a clear bitter chocolate ending keeps things focused. 50% new oak. 14% Petit Verdot makes up the blend. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Château Du Tertre is solid, offering an attractive bouquet of red and black fruits, vanilla bean, dried flowers, balsam (which I always seem to find in this wine), and sandalwood. It's beautifully complex, has medium-bodied richness, moderate tannins, and a forward, charming, already delicious style that's ideal for enjoying over the coming 15 years. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 du Tertre was picked starting September 17 and finishing around October 12, and matured in 50% new oak, including recently introduced foudres, for around 14 months. It has a clean, precise, quite floral bouquet of black fruit infused with hints of lavender and iris flower; there is fine cohesion here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, the Merlot really lending flesh and roundness to the texture, and a fine bead of acidity. Touches of brown spice appear toward the fresh, engaging finish. This is a very pleasurable du Tertre in the making and I suspect it should drink well after just four or five years. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Darker and more savoury than the Sirène de Giscours, tasted alongside, with a fine note of crushed rocks. Really pure, delicately floral, smells – and tastes – elegant. Fine texture, dry tannic finesse. Unusually pretty in this vintage. Lots of freshness through to the finish. Already showing real refinement when many wines are too concentrated to show their likely future. (JH) 17/20 Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Spicy red fruits upfront with a lingering savory character. Pretty and spicy. Solid effort.
