Tasting Notes and Scores

90-93

Wine Advocate

The 2021 du Tertre is a very pretty, elegant wine, bursting with aromas of wild berries, exotic spices, cigar box and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, it's velvety and enveloping, with bright acids, beautifully refined tannins and a mouthwatering finish. The blend this year is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, a mere 10% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Château du Tertre was picked from September 28 until October 12 and aged in 50% new oak. It is quite bold on the nose, offering expressive blackberry, mint and cedar scents, almost Pauillac-like in style. Affording it a few minutes in the glass, it seems to gather momentum. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, concentrated black fruit, a little graphite toward the finish courtesy of the Cabernet Sauvignon, and quite a spicy aftertaste. This is a commendable 2021 that should age with style.

Dark crimson. Intense, rather glamorous nose. Rich and silky-smooth. Quite seductive and none of the café-crème (oak?) notes that this wine used to have. Good combination of intensity and refreshment. Very long. Quite a success! Even if it comes to a rather sudden halt. Medium tannic grip on the end.

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 du Tertre is a big, powerful wine. A blast of dark cherry, plum, spice, chocolate tobacco, licorice and incense give the 2021 its flamboyant personality. The 2021 is a dense, powerful du Tertre. It will be interesting to see how the 2021 comes together. It is certainly promising. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

First full year under new owners the Helfrich family, with the talented Frederic Ardouin remaining as techincal director. This is sculpted, skilfully worked, with plenty of finessed raspberry and loganberry fruit, sandalwood smoke on the nose and gentle tannic frame. Good appellation signature, well balanced.
