- French wineyard
The Château de Tertre belongs to the Fifth Grand Cru family of the Margaux appellation. The vineyard covers 52 hectares with vines aged 40 years old on average.
The estate took a big turn when it was bought in 1997 by Eric Albada-Jelgersma accompanied by oenologist Jacques Boissenot, who rethought the entire production of wine. The creation of a new vat did much to enhance the wine of Château.
Harvesting is done by hand and sorting of the fruits is done after harvest. The maceration is carried out over 3 weeks, the wine is then aged in oak barrels for 18 months (50% new), with a racking every 3 months. Before bottling, Château conducts a fining with egg white.
Grape variety : 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
Annual production : 120,000 bottles.
