Château du Tertre

In the south-western reaches of Margaux is Le Grand Poujeau, a large gravel plateau which peaks at just over 20m above sea level. The vines here belong to several well known Margaux chateaux, including Giscours and d'Angludet, but many of them are owned by Chateau du Tertre. Indeed, tertre refers to a hillock or knoll, and this is the origin of this estate's name.

The ruby ​​purple reflections on the Château du Tertre 2012 is admirable. On the palate, it offers notes of gooseberry and currant, decorated with a touch of liquorice on a rather woody. Its soft tannins and light acidity contribute to the balance of this wine.
