This Château du Tertre Blanc is made from a blend of Gros Manseng Chardonnay Viognier Sauvignon blanc. That's why it's a Vin de France, but no less tasty! Juicy, full and soft. Mango, white peach, little pepper and nice acidity.

The history of Château du Tertre goes back a long way. If we look back at the history books, du Tertre is already being talked about in the 16th century. After the second world war it was Philippe Gasqueton who Ch. du Tertre back on the map. He brought the vineyards and wine cellars in good condition, so that the wine from Margaux is counted among the top. However, the real quality improvement was made by the late Eric Albada Jelgersma (from Laurus), who took over the Château with 52 hectares of vineyard in 1997 from the widow Gasqueton. 21 ha are planted with cabernet sauvignon, 18 with merlot and 25 with cabernet franc and petit verdot. With enormous ambition and ditto investments, the wines of Château du Tertre are back on the map. Alexander van Beek was the director, and is also the director of Château Giscours, also in Margaux, which is also owned by the late Eric Albada Jelgersma. Denis Dubourdieu is oenological consultant at du Tertre. At the beginning of 2020, the Château was sold to the Helfrich family, known for Les Grands Chais de France. Now Du Tertre is more than worthy of a top level wine and 5th Grand Cru Classé. The Château is located on an impressive hill (called 'Tertre' in French) completely surrounded by vines.
