Chateau du Tertre 2005
|Brand||Chateau du Tertre|
A beautiful Margaux made in a flashy, flamboyant style, Du Tertre will repay earlier drinking than many of the big 2005 Medocs. It exhibits a dark saturated purple color, beautiful aromas of licorice-infused blackberries and black currants, sweet truffles, incense, and barbecue spices, an expansive, savory, medium to full-bodied personality with tremendous opulence as well as sweetness, and a heady, fleshy finish.
Aromatic, with floral, berry and cherry character. Medium-bodied, with coffee bean, lightly toasted oak and currant, berry aftertaste. Little austere. Needs time.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
