Vintage

After a rather harsh winter, the oceanic climate typical of the Bordeaux region proved to be comforting during the summer. The alternation of sun, clouds, rain and wind was conducted to a gentle maturation of the grapes. This vintage, full of surprises, reflects its terroir: between power and delicacy.

Tasting notes

With a crimson garnet colour, the 2017 reveals a floral nose, marked by red and black fruit, raspberry, supported by roasted aromas and pepper. Faithful to the nose, the palate delivers the finest toasty notes of vanilla, mocha coffee with Kirsch on the finish. A fine tannic structure envelops the supple palate

Château Marquis de Terme, Grand Cru Classé of 1855

Unique, timeless, and unbeatable, it is the first representative and keystone of the domain. That is why it receives the greatest attention in its preparation. After sorting the grapes in the vineyards and then carefully on a sorting table, vinification is done by parcels with minimal intervention. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in concrete and thermoregulated stainless steel tanks before aging for 16 to 18 months in oak barrels, with an annual production of around 80,000 bottles.

Château Marquis de Terme fully expresses its typical gravel terroir through its blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The vineyard is planted on a historic gravel terroir in the heart of the Margaux appellation. Precision, technique, and new materials bring more purity to the wines. Density and freshness reveal silky notes with elegantly crafted tannins, typical of Marquis de Terme wines.
