2019 Château Marquis de Terme  (Margaux) 94

Violets and spice, coupled with dark chocolate and black juicy plums, bring you to a silky, sexy, soft and polished center. From there, the medium-bodied wine on the palate serves up all its layers of ripe, sweet, sensuously textured fruits. The wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. 93-95 Pts

2017 Château Marquis de Terme  (Margaux) 92

I like the floral nature here, especially since it is coupled with loads of ripe, soft, round, sweet, silky, fresh red fruits with a kiss of oak. This should come around nicely with a few more years in the cellar. 92 Points

Elegant, silky, fresh and vibrant, the fruit is soft, polished, ripe and pure. If you look closely, you can already find the floral nuances along with licorice, cherry, black raspberry and smoke. Give this 8-10 years and it is going to be a beauty! 94 Points

Showing better from the bottle than it did in barrel, the wine has filled out and softened, adding floral nuances to the licorice, cherry, black raspberry and smoky overtones. Soft, polished, round and with fruit to spare, this is showing great today and will only get better wine time. 94 Points

2015 Château Marquis de Terme  (Margaux) 94

Dark ruby in color, there is a real depth of flavor here, due to all the layers of lushly textured, soft, polished, ripe, sweet, black and red fruits. The wine is silky, concentrated, velvety textured and energetic. This will age quite well. 94 Points

With intensity of flavor, the dark, perfectly ripe, sweet, black and deep fruits offer a concentrated, velvety textured, mouthful of wine. There is length, richness, complexity, energy and the ability to age and evolve for at least 3 decades, or longer. This is another Margaux that is a contender for the best wine ever produced at the estate. 95 Points
