Critics Château Marquis de Terme 2015.
Description Château Marquis de Terme 2015.
Nature graced the Bordeaux vineyards with a very fine vintage in 2015. The climatic conditions were ideal throughout the vine cycle in the Margaux appellation. Flowering, veraison and ripening benefited each time from a privileged climate. The harvest was carried out serenely with berries of excellent oenological quality.
Blend of the 2015 vintage: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
The robe is a dark red color, with elegant garnet tinted reflections.
The nose reveals a beautiful purity of fruit, with notes of black cherry, raspberry and black currant, enhanced by pepper and cocoa.
The attack is supple, giving way to a silky and dense body carried by elegant tannins. Evolving with precision on greedy flavors of red berries and spices, it rises crescendo in volume and freshness. It blooms on a long, fruity and persistent finish. A Margaux wine of great finesse.
Food and wine pairing:
Château Marquis de Terme 2015 will pair deliciously with a Châteaubriand with truffle sauce, a famous roast chicken, duck breast with Pinot Noir sauce, venison hazelnuts or veal grenadin with morel sauce.
For a pairing with cheese, prefer pressed and uncooked cheeses: cantal, old mimolette, morbier, saint-nectaire and tomme de Savoie. It can also be enjoyed with Brie de Meaux, Gouda or Salers.
For dessert, it will be particularly exquisite with a raspberry and chocolate charlotte, Ricardo Larrivée's chocolate cake or a praline entremet.
Cellaring potential and tasting:
Chateau Marquis de Terme 2015 would benefit from another five years in the cellar to refine its potential, and will reach its peak between 2028 and 2032.
However, it lends itself wonderfully to tasting today. To do so, be sure to place the bottle in the serving room at room temperature, open it and decant it ideally 4 to 5 hours before tasting.
The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from the light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
