James Suckling, 94 Points 

"Extremely deep and ripe on the nose with dried-berry, chocolate and plum aromas that follow through to a full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful finish. A rich and soft-tannin structure to the wine. Try after 2024.

Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"Partnered with Château Giscours as far as the wine-making team is concerned, this estate has created its own style. This wine shows a hint of initial aus-terity before opening out with rich fruits and struc-ture. It needs time and the wine will not be ready to drink before 2025." 

Decanter, 92 Points 

"A beautifully smooth, silky du Tertre in 2016, with an emphasis on subtle spicing, full of subtle but unmistakably exotic black chocolate, white pepper and cloves. Elegant and slightly restrained with generously silky tannins, a lovely wine." 

Vinous, 92 Points 

"The 2016 du Tertre has really come together nicely. There is a sense of translucence in the 2016 that conveys finesse and refinement. Sage, mint, dried flowers and sweet herbs add layers of aromatic nuance as the sweet red cherry and plum fruit is pushed forward. I would prefer to drink this pleasant, easygoing Margaux over the next 10-15 years." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"Fresh damson plum, bitter cherry and savory notes are seamlessly layered together, with fresh tobacco and a flash of iron checking in on the pure, silky, persistent finish, where the slightly high-pitched fruit plays out nicely. Best from 2021 through 2032." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 90 Points 

"An outstanding Margaux with its classic perfume of sweet red fruits, dried flowers, balsam wood, and spice, the 2016 Château du Tertre is medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate. This is one of those wines that grows on you with time in the glass, and while it plays in the elegant, pretty end of the spectrum, it has wonderful fruit. It should keep nicely for 15 years or so." 

Wine Advocate, 90 Points 

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 du Tertre features cassis, red plums and spice box on the nose with herbs and earth nuances. The palate is medium-bodied, lean and soft with an earthy finish." 

Alcohol: 13%
