reviewsJames Suckling 92-93
Tight and focused with blackberry, blueberry and some licorice character. Medium body, firm tannins and a bright, linear finish.
Wine Advocate 89-91
Exhibiting aromas of sweet cherries, berries, loamy soil and creamy new oak, the 2021 Marquis de Terme is medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a seamless, polished profile and creditable depth at the core despite the challenging vintage. William Kelley
The 2021 Marquis de Terme has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and crushed iris petal scents. The palate is well balanced with sappy black fruit, fine tannins, well-judged acidity and a sapid finish. This actually punches above my expectations and looks promising. I look forward to re-tasting this in bottle because this is the best wine from the estate I've tasted in many years. Neal Martin
