    A tight and precise du Tertre with deep and dark fruit, as well as fresh flowers. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a clean and beautiful finish. The tannins are folding into the wine here. - James Suckling

    A bright sanguine thread runs from start to finish here, lacing up the damson plum, savory, bitter cherry and black tea notes. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    A touch subdued on the nose, this is an extremely accomplished wine that's full of pleasure. It holds itself back for a few minutes and you can feel the concentration that comes from small berry size, from a yield of 36hl/ha - pretty good for 2018 considering the gravel and sand terroir will have suffered in the dry summer. But it opens in the glass to reveal bouncy tannins and a layer of slatey minerality that you push up against on the finish. Vinified at 25°C. 50% new oak. 14% Petit Verdot makes up the blend. - Jane Anson, Decanter

    The 2018 du Tertre is dense and powerful. Scorched earth, game, tobacco, licorice and incense give the 2018 its decidedly feral, pungent character. The 2018 seems quite marked by the radiant intensity of Merlot in its fruit and Petit Verdot in its savory overtones. The blend is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 14% Petit Verdot.- Antonio Galloni

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 du Tertre is a little reduced to begin, opening out to notions of baked plums, warm cassis and dried mulberries with hints of tar, chargrill and black pepper plus a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied with a firm, chewy frame, it has a good amount of baked berries and herbal flavors with a sage-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
