Château Marquis de Terme, Margaux 4CC
Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18 AG 16 SS 17
Pleasing bouquet of black cherry and blackcurrant. There’s spice and vigour on the mid-palate, but it’s taut, tightly wound and not very expressive now. A robust wine with a good future.

Drink 2015–2035
Alc 13.5%
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
