Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then blind at Farr's horizontal, the 2006 Château du Tertre has a loose-knit bouquet with earthy, slightly dour red berry fruit that need more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, balanced but it seems like a wine that has run out of ideas and does not know where to go. Tasted around the same time as the excellent 2015, I would hedge my money against the more recent vintage and wait! Alternatively, there are several other vintages that have performed better in recent years. Tasted April 2016. Neal Martin

Tasting note


The 2006 Chateau du Tertre, a distinguished Fifth Growth from the esteemed Margaux appellation, is a testament to the exceptional terroir of Bordeaux. With a medium ruby-red hue, this wine exudes dark fruit aromas intertwined with earthy, dusty notes. On the palate, ripe dark fruits assert themselves against a backdrop of soft tannins and a rich, velvety mid-palate. The wine's structure is complemented by warm alcohol and a finish that gracefully balances ripe fruit with subtle earthy tones. Aged in French oak barrels, this wine has developed a complex profile that will continue to evolve, making it a captivating choice for any connoisseur.
