A familar style here - blackish purple colour, quite good crunch of intense black fruit, but seems a litle blocky. Will provide a satisfying drink. Rating: 89 L&S (Apr 2013)

The Marquis de Terme is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It sports a very composed, focused bouquet with Margaux-like floral aromas that waft gently from the glass. There is some good use of oak here. The palate is well balanced with firm, grippy tannins on the entry. This looks to be a classic Marquis de Terme with plenty of sappy black fruit towards the solid finish. It is missing a little persistency on the mouth, but hopefully it will soften and become a decent Margaux 2012. Rating: 89-91 Neal Martin, (May 2013)

A firm, narrowly constructed wine with a healthy color as well as attractive dusty, loamy soil notes intermixed with blue and black fruits, the 2012 Marquis de Terme's earthiness, moderate tannin and moderately concentrated style suggest drinking it during its first 10-12 years of life. 2013 - 2025 Rating: 85-87 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Apr 2013)
