Description Château Marquis de Terme 2015 Magnum.

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 in magnum 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:

Château Marquis de Terme 2015 in magnum can wait another 15 years in the cellar, reaching its peak between 2038 and 2040. Indeed, the large capacity of the format gives the wine a greater potential for aging.

However, it can be enjoyed today if properly prepared. To do so, make sure to place the bottle in the serving room at room temperature the night before and open it. If not, open and decant the bottle ideally 6 to 7 hours before the tasting.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar, protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
