2014 Margaux, 4 Cru Classé from Bordeaux.
The 2014 Marquis de Terme is a distinguished Margaux that seduces by its power. This wine of Chateau Marquis de Terme is concentrated with a good tannic structure; it reveals a dense and complex aromatic expression. This Margaux offers liquorice fragrances, followed by delicious fruity notes. The palate is balanced, between finesse and strength. It is an elegant and truly subtle wine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Marquis-de-Terme offers strawberry preserve and raspberry coulis on the nose, quite pure and generous, though I would like to see more mineralité and terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. The oak needs to fully knit on the entry, though there is sufficient fruit to absorb that with time, and the finish feels caressing in the mouth. If this can foster more terroir expression, more personality, then it will merit a higher score. It's like a film director yelling at the actress... give me more!
