James SucklingA little bit shy on the nose, but the balance of good concentration and powdery tannins creates a creamy impression that extends through the long finish — one that’s already smooth enough to give a lot of pleasure. Try drinking in 2020.

Wine AdvocateThe Château du Tertre 2014 is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot picked from 26 September until 16 October. It has a slightly more opulent nose than the Giscours at the moment with red plum and crushed strawberry fruit, a slight gravel accent coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and more weight than the Giscours. It feels harmonious and fleshly, lightly spiced with a long tender finish. Alexandre van Beek has overseen a very commendable Margaux for the vintage and it should drink well over the next 15 to 20 years.

Wine SpectatorPepper and savory flavors lead the way, followed by slightly brisk damson plum, cherry pit and iron notes. Not dense, but shows a good racy edge on the finish. Score range: 88-91

Vinous The 2014 du Tertre is a bold, powerful wine. Smoke, licorice, wild dark cherry and game are front and center. Though it is a touch rough around the edges, the 2014 possesses notable depth and intensity. Time in bottle may help soften some of the tannins, but this is never an especially refined wine.
