A beautiful wine with an even nicer price tag!
Château du Terme located in region Haut Médoc, Bordeaux. The Vineyard stands on the sublime terroir that runs along the Garonne river to the East which makes some of the most desirable wines in the region. This terroir gives finesse to the cabernet and a wonderful expression to the bouquet of the merlot. Merlot is the dominant grape here because it always arrives at full maturity meaning the wines are ripe and fresh with an elegant cabernet backbone.
Serge Saint Martin (Father of Maxime Saint Martin, owner of Châtaeu GRaves de Pez in Saint-Estèphe, made his first vintage in 1982. He fad purchased 0,3 hectares upon his return from military service and over the years, he has hand selected some micro parcels of great terroir sandwiched between Margaux South, Saint-Julien to the North and Moulis to the West.
This wine is characterised by a wonderful expression of dark fruit. It is corpulent on the palate and long on the finish.
