  • The wine is aged in new barrels (50% renewed each year) and then bottled at the Château following the classic Médoc method. Marquis de Terme is a Margaux in the traditional style with an elegant nose that has blackcurrant and raspberry aromas. On the palate it is rich, smooth and elegant and is a wine to be enjoyed after aging in the cellar for five to fifteen years.

    The estate owes its name to the first Marquis of Thermes, Paul de la Barthe, who was born in 1482. With the passing of time and a succession of marriages, by the end of the 17th century the title had lost its h. At this time the Marquis de Termes, Roger de Pardaillan de Gondrin, was a courtier under Louis XIV. Ruined, he died in 1704 with no male descendants. After various marriages, the title and the seignory were passed to François III de Péguilhan. When he married, his wife's dowry included land in Cantenac. The wine that was produced from these plots is recorded under the name of Marquis de Termes on Bordeaux's tax register from 1762 onwards. They were forced to sell the vineyard during the French Revolution. It then had a succession of different owners, including the Feuillerat family who, having been ruined in the 1929 crash, sold the property to the Sénéclauze family. There are 40 hectares of vines. Since the arrival of a new director in 2009, Ludovic David, extensive renovation work has been carried out in the winery. The wines are aged in oak barrels (50% renewed each year) and then bottled at the Château in the classic Médoc style.

Tasting notes - Extract
Profondément coloré, le Marquis de Terme 1995 est doté de puissance et de ressort, mais également d'un fruité mûr. D'une pureté et d'une richesse en extraits admirables, il présente dependant en finale des tannins durs et rugueux qui ne manquent pas d'inquiéter. Source : Robert Parker (3/96)
