Powerful and well-balanced, a fine Margaux red wine

The estate

In the heart of the Margaux appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux, lies Chateau Marquis de Terme. The origins of the vineyard date back to the 15th century, but the estate took on its current name in the 18th century when the Marquis de Terme took over the running of the estate. Since 1935, the Seneclauze family has owned this Margaux Grand Cru.

The vineyard

Chateau Marquis de Terme produces fine Margaux wines from a 39.5-hectare vineyard that is planted on the appellation’s typical deep gravel soils. The vines, which are 35 years old on average, are planted on soils made up of quartz, thick quartzite and, in some areas, clay.

The vintage

2015 was a vintage marked by a lack of rain as well as significant periods of heat. A mild winter with average rainfall preceded a spring marked by major water stress, causing a delay in budburst of around 15 days. The milder conditions from June onwards accelerated the vegetative growth and favored a good flowering period. However, the hot, dry summer weather delayed veraison. The rainy spells at the beginning of August helped the vineyard to perfect the veraison and then the ripening stages. During the harvest, the grapes, concentrated and mature, contributed to the wine’s density, elegance, power and harmony. A great vintage, on a par with 2009 and 2010.

Vinification and aging

Manual harvest in crates. Rigorous sorting to keep only the best quality grapes. Transfer using gravity flow and without pumping into concrete, wood and stainless steel vats. The wine is aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)

Merlot (35%)

Petit Verdot (5%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Marquis de Terme offers up cassis, black cherries and plums on the nose with touches of garrigue, lavender and Provence herbs. The medium-bodied palate offers great fruit concentration with savory accents and ripe, grainy tannins plus plenty of freshness, finishing earthy.
