"This is textbook Margaux, with a supple, velvety feel and a stylish core of plum, red currant and black cherry fruit laced with perfumy spice and followed by lightly dusty tannins." (WS)

"Some of my tasting colleagues enjoyed the 2010 Du Tertre more than I, but I found it somewhat short for the vintage. However, it does offer a dark ruby color as well as attractive cranberry, black cherry and berry fruit intermixed with cedar and licorice characteristics. Although well-made, it did not excite me as much as many of the 2010s. Drink it over the next 12-15 years." (WA)

"(70% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 10% petit verdot) Fully saturated deep ruby. Floral, fragrant, delicate nose offers captivating cabernet franc-driven aromas of blackcurrant, strawberry and white pepper. Enters clean and smooth, with rich black fruit flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. Delicious and hard to resist, showing lovely balance. The building tannins are rather assertive yet nicely polished. The estate can count on some very old cabernet franc vines, and I feel that this fruit added an extra dimension to this 2010." (IWC)

"du Tertre is the product of a blend from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. This is unique for the property as they usually include between 10% and 20% Cabernet Franc. This assemblage created a perfume of tobacco leaf, fresh herbs and blackberries. This elegant, medium/full bodied wine is filled with sweet cassis, ripe tannin and floral sensations ending with soft textures and ample freshness in the finish." (JL)

"This is velvety and very juicy with a blueberry, mineral and wet weather character that has hints of black truffles. Full and rich. Best du Tertre ever. Muscular. Not rustic like in the past. 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Merlot and 10 percent Petit Verdot.$$" (JS)
