The audacity of an estate that crosses the centuries …
Because we cannot talk about Marquis without telling its story, let us guide you and go back in time with us… (And promise, you won’t take one wrinkle!)
Marquis de Terme’ story begins in 1762, when Miss Ledoux d’Emplet, wife of François de Peguilhan Marquis de Terme, giving him as a dowry the estate which will henceforth bear his name.

The excellence of a Grand Cru Classé
Napoléon III decided to organize the universal exhibition in Paris, official committees are responsible for selecting products and work of art for exhibition. In order to honour the wines of Bordeaux, a classification is requested. That is how Marquis de Terme joined the circle of the Grands Crus Classés 1855.
The Sénéclauze’ passion
Pierre Sénéclauze repurchases the property and conveys it to its sons, Pierre-Louis, Phillipe and Jean, actual owners.
A new era looking to the future
The owners appoint Ludovic David to the board of directors of Château Marquis de Terme. This change is the starting point of a new area for the estate. Numerous innovations and a new dynamism are brought to enhance the exceptional terroir of the Marquis de Terme wines.
The birth of a new vintage: Marquis de Terme Cuvée 1762
The birth of a new vintage occurs with the excitement, curiosity, and emotion of creation. With the 2018 vintage, my team and I wanted to give a new meaning to our blending choices, a search for balance between subtlety and suppleness to create Cuvée 1762. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot find here, on our terroir of deep gravel, a development of great distinction.
