Chateau Marquis de Terme is an emblematic name in the prestigious Margaux appellation, and is one of those unmissable Grands Crus Classes from the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.
Ludovic David, the chateau's wine director, has masterfully assembled the wines since 2009. Chateau Marquis de Terme reveals all its potential with wines that stand out vintage after vintage as they continue to gain more density and precision.
Although the 2017 vintage will be remembered because of the frost that hit the Bordeaux vineyards at the end of April, the Marquis de Terme displays an excellent level despite the challenges of the vintage.
Concentrated and with beautiful ripe fruit, the bouquet reveals strawberry and plum notes underlined with smoky notes reminiscent of the delicate tea scents. On the palate, it is structured with lovely acidity and balanced tannins. The Marquis de Terme 2017 is a powerful and well-structured Margaux that will age beautifully and reveal all of its complexity and finesse.
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Marquis de Terme leaps from the glass with notes of baked plums, warm blackberries and cassis plus touches of wild sage, tree bark and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, the palate is bight, fresh and easygoing with a good amount of uncomplicated red and black fruit and an herbal lift to the finish.
