Fresh and enticing, with lots of plum and black cherry compote flavors. Light anise and singed sandalwood hints show on the fleshy, open finish.

This is a good quality wine, well made, clean and confidently held together. Sumptuous black fruits abound, while you get the sense of the architecture of the year with the firm tannins and fresh acids. Marquis de Terme also follows the vintage trend in terms of yield at 47hl/ha, not suffering from a low crop despite the organic methods that are used across 60% of the estate (with no herbicides across the entire estate and extensive planting of trees and hedges among the 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot). Wild yeast fermentation and long maceration of five weeks.
Wine Enthusiast: 94
Structured, and with fine juicy fruit, this is a ripe wine that is also firm. It has a sense of style to it, elegant and bright. This will be for the medium term, ready in 10 years.
