2001 Château Marquis de Terme Margaux Wine Tasting Note

2001 Château Marquis de Terme  (Margaux) 89

Charming, fully mature, mid-weight, easy drinking charmer, with perhaps more interest on the nose, than the soft, but light palate.

When to Drink Chateau Marquis de Terme, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Marquis de Terme can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. But you are better off giving the wine some time to develop. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1-3 hours, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Marquis de Terme is usually better with at least 7-9 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Marquis de Terme offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-18 years of age after the vintage.
