The Story

Château Marquis de Terme is owned by Famille Sénéclauze, this 35 ha property produces on average 13,000 cases per year. Located in the centre of the Margaux appellation, the property shares a similar climate to that enjoyed by the Médoc: maritime, with the Gironde estuary & the Bay of Biscay combining to act as a climate regulator & the coastal pine forests sheltering the vines from the westerly & north-westerly winds.

The vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 55%; Merlot 35%; Cabernet Franc 3%; Petit Verdot 7%) lie on gravelly-clay soils. Vinification includes approximately 18 months' wood ageing, 40% new oak. It is classified as a '4ème Cru Classé'.

Deep colour. Vegemite, black olive, dark berry aromas. Sweet inky wine with dark berry, inky fruit, fine plentiful chalky tannins, integrated oak and fine long acidity. Touch acidity. Finishes firm and minerally. Touch muddy. 89 points

Deep purple red with violet hue and black core. Very concentrated and expressive character, dark chocolate, succulent fruit, balmy spices in the background. On the palate well structured with good concentration, full-bodied character with excellent length, still on a rather classic side.
