Fragrant blackberries married to moderate vanilla oak on the nose. Then cue an elegant, moderately tannic palate with some real sophistication. What a seductive wine. I love the long clean, dry and mineral finish that makes you sure this has a couple of decades ahead of it, even if it drinks well now.
The 2015 Marquis-de-Terme has a clean and precise bouquet with ebullient blackberry and raspberry fruit, quite a strong marine influence developing in the glass with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, judiciously integrated oak and a focused, cedar-tinged finish that has a nod to Pauillac. This is a very fine Margaux that should age well over the next 15-20 years. (NM)
This is a ripe, juicy wine, showing the improvements at this potentially fine estate. Dense tannins and succulent fruit come together to give a wine that is both structured and complex. The black-currant and berry flavors are underlined with a ripe structure. Drink from 2024. (RV)
Another wine that shows the quality of the 2015s in Margaux, an easy rider that takes its time, with low-hanging dark fruits that are broadly brushed, giving a sense of enjoyment, with power behind. 50% new oak. (JA)
Another gem from Margaux is the 2015 Marquis De Terme and this supple, full-bodied, concentrated beauty boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with terrific purity in its ripe cassis fruits, violets/spring flowers, obvious minerality, and background oak. Like most 2015s, it’s already beautiful and shows the sweet fruit of the vintage, yet should keep for at least two decades. Tasted twice.
The 2015 Marquis de Terme is dark, fleshy and wonderfully inviting. Dark red cherry and plum notes wrap around the palate, followed by floral and spice and new leather overtones that add lovely aromatic lift. Gorgeous and impeccably balanced throughout, the 2015 is a winner from Marquis de Terme. Tasted two times. (AG)
Brambly, juicy and energetic, with anise, plum cake and blackberry compote notes inlaid with brambly tannins. A light black tea streak adds nuance on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. (JM)
