Château Marquis de Termeʼs history starts in 1762, when the property was included in Mademoiselle Ledoulx dʼEmpletʼs dowry in her marriage to François de Peguilhan, Marquis de Terme. The property, belonging to the Sénéclauze family since 1935, has a 260-year history. Cuvée 1762 is the expression of this timelessness. It is made to be the representation of the personality and the typycity of our terroir. All 26 of the vineyardʼs plots are used in the blend.
40 ha of deep gravel typical of Margaux, with pockets of clay deeper down, consisting of three types of terroir:
Average age of the vines: 35 years-old
Manual harvesting, rigorous sorting to the vineyard and to the cellar.
Soils and vineyard plot management. Sustainable agriculture and respect for ecological balance. 100% of the products used are approved for organic farming or biocontrol. HEV 3 certification.
Parcellar vinification in concrete, wood and stainless-steel temperature-controlled vats filled by gravity without pumping. Cold pre-fermentation maceration, alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts, punching down, vinification without sulphites.
12 months in French oak barrels and concrete vats
DIAM stopper, guaranteed free of cork taint
A winter full of contrasts followed by a mild, rainy spring. The summer confirmed that the vintage would be characterized by highly variable weather. Exceptional sunshine and heat in July and August dried out the soils, creating the water stress favourable to quality. The usual Indian summer, enabled the grapes to finish ripening in perfect conditions, enhancing the quality of the vintage.
Cuvée 1762 has a deep colour with glints of purple. Rich bouquet with floral notes and scents of blackberry, dark chocolate, bitter orange and liquorice. The palate is full-bodied, round and creamy. Dark berry flavours emerge to accompany the mocha finish.
