Producer: Chateau Du Tertre
The words sexy, seductive, and opulent do not characterize most wines of the 2004 Bordeaux vintage. However, they do describe Du Tertre’s offering, an exotic, nearly flamboyant wine that seduces the taster with its forward display of earthy, herb-tinged cassis and black cherry fruit, round, soft, lush palate, and concentrated, fleshy finish. Even the barrel sample could have been drunk with great pleasure. Enjoy it upon release, and over the following 12-14 years.
