The history of Château du Tertre goes back a long way. If we look back at the history books, du Tertre is already mentioned in the 16th century. After the Second World War it was Philippe Gasqueton who founded Ch. du Tertre back on the map. He put the vineyards and wine cellars in good condition, so that the wine is considered one of the best from Margaux. However, the real improvement in quality was made by the late Eric Albada Jelgersma (of Laurus), who took over the Château with 52 hectares of vineyard from the widow Gasqueton in 1997. 21 hectares are planted with cabernet sauvignon, 18 with merlot and 25 with cabernet franc and petit verdot. With enormous ambition and investments, the wines of Château du Tertre are back on the menu. Alexander van Beek was, 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 a top-level wine and more than worthy of the 5th Grand Cru Classé. The Château is located on an impressive hill (called 'Tertre' in French) that is completely surrounded by vines.

This Château du Tertre Blanc is made from 23% Chardonnay, 39% Gros Manseng, 19% Viognier, and 19% Sauvignon Blanc. That's why it's a Vin de France, but no less tasty! Juicy, full and soft. Mango, white peach, a bit of pepper and nice acidity.

FACT: The wines come from the cellars of the Chateau directly to our conditioned Warehouse in Dordrecht where all our wines are stored.
