"Some of my tasting colleagues enjoyed the 2010 Du Tertre more than I, but I found it somewhat short for the vintage. However, it does offer a dark ruby color as well as attractive cranberry, black cherry and berry fruit intermixed with cedar and licorice characteristics. Although well-made, it did not excite me as much as many of the 2010s. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."

"The du Tertre has no Cabernet Franc this year, made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, the highest ever. The harvest started 28th September until the middle of October. Two samples, the first at the chateau discounted as it had been open too long. The second at the UGC has a very obdurate nose, tightly coiled and not as flamboyant as its peers, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Blackberry, sous-bois, tobacco and a touch of graphite, good definition but it does not muster the same vivacity as Giscours. The palate is very tannic and a little austere, a hardness to the tannins that will soften with barrel age, nice grip, taut and just a little peppery towards the dry finish. Very classic in style and incongruous to many of its peers, but I think this could surprise a few people in bottle. I look forward to re-tasting it."
