The 2021 Marquis de Terme has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and crushed iris petal scents. The palate is well balanced with sappy black fruit, fine tannins, well-judged acidity and a sapid finish. This actually punches above my expectations and looks promising. I look forward to re-tasting this in bottle because this is the best wine from the estate I've tasted in many years. -Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
Tight and focused with blackberry, blueberry and some licorice character. Medium body, firm tannins and a bright, linear finish. - James Suckling.
Lovely soft perfumed aromas on the nose. Smooth and silky, the texture is appealing straight away, perfectly weighted giving richly perfumed but also gently fleshy fruit, freshness, body and acidity. A minerality comes through on the finish alongside touches of clove, but so well integrated they merely peek through. I like the finesse here, you really feel they got the balance right. It's direct and linear for sure but carrying depth and intensity so well. Chalky and grippy, it's gently persistent. It feels well worked. I like it a lot and look forward to tasting in bottle. Tasted twice. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
Exhibiting aromas of sweet cherries, berries, loamy soil and creamy new oak, the 2021 Marquis de Terme is medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a seamless, polished profile and creditable depth at the core despite the challenging vintage. -William Kelley, The Wine Advocate.
