2015 5ème Cru Classé Margaux

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Haut Médoc
Village Margaux
Classification 5ème Cru Classé
ABV 14%

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. Quite a big broad slap of ripe fruit on the entry, stays wide across the palate, keeping a certain freshness in the dryness. Not the last word in energy or directedness, but pretty delicious. Rating: 90-91 L&S (Apr 2016)

This bottle of 2015 du Tertre was showing a bit of brettanomyces that smothered what in the past has constituted a fine Margaux. Subsequently, I opened another bottle, sighted, that was more in line with previous encounters, offering bilberry and blackberry on the nose and a light graphite note on the palate. This is a wine that I will track closely. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. Rating: 91 Neal Martin, (Jul 2019)

Quite a lot of cocoa powder on the nose of this, and that really adds something to the rich fruit and suave tannins that give this intensity. If the finish were a little brighter this would rate even more highly. Rating: 92 James Suckling, (Feb 2018)

The 2015 du Tertre is a firm, potent wine with plenty of energy and overall drive. As it did from barrel, the bottled 2015 comes across as lacking a bit of mid-palate depth, which makes the wine its rather compact feel. There is good nuance to the savory, earthy flavors, but I would like to see a little more fruit and overall depth. Even so, the 2015 is an attractive wine with plenty of character. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Drinking range: 2020 - 2035 Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, (Feb 2018)
