The 2016 du Tertre has a nose of fragrant fruit, more red than black, featuring raspberry and wild strawberry mixed with graphite and light cedar aromas. The harmonious, focused palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and good mineralité. This might not have as much substance as its Margaux peers, but it feels very sustained in the mouth.
