This attractive deep ruby/plum/purple wine is supple, with notes of loamy soil, earth, underbrush and black and red currants. Very fragrant and medium-bodied, with relatively sweet tannin, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15+ years.
"A beautiful Margaux made in a flashy, flamboyant style, Du Tertre will repay earlier drinking than many of the big 2005 Medocs. It exhibits a dark saturated purple color, beautiful aromas of licorice-infused blackberries and black currants, sweet truffles, incense, and barbecue spices, an expansive, savory, medium to full-bodied personality with tremendous opulence as well as sweetness, and a heady, fleshy finish. This hedonist 2005 should be at its finest between 2010-2025." -Wine Advocate- WA:90.
