Located on one of the highest and most beautiful gravelly rises in the Margaux appellation, Château du Tertre was created in the 18th century by an important Irish merchant, Pierre Mitchell, who fell in love with the Bordeaux region and its wine.
The founder of the first of glassworks in Bordeaux, this refined, innovative man realised one of his fondest dreams by establishing his own fine wine estate. Other famous families followed in his footsteps, including the Koenigswarters and rich bankers close to Emperor Napoleon III. The quality of the wine was much that it was included among the Margaux great growths in the 1855 classification.
In 1997, Éric Albada Jelgersma acquired the estate. Thanks to major investments, Château du Tertre now expresses its intrinsically elegant personality. Today, Dennis, Derk and Valérie Albada Jelgersma continue the family tradition, ensuring the future of this outstanding estate.
This second wine of Château du Tertre comes from the selection of our youngest vines. The vinification and ageing benefit from the same care as the Grand Vin, Chateau du Tertre. You will love the character and refinement of this Margaux.
