Château du Tertre
Château du Tertre is located in the French town of Arsac, which is part of the department of Gironde. Château du Tertre is located in the highest part of the wine town of Margaux with the most refined gravel strata of the Médoc. The vines cover themselves in the light and the sun and protect them against the late frost in the spring. A vapor provides natural drainage, separates the 2 gravel layers and cools the vines. This lowers the temperature of the vines which is vital for development and protects them from both excess water and drought. Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape variety of this winery. Furthermore, we work with the types Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The Château du Tertre is an estate of about 1000 years old. The associated vineyard extends over 52 hectares, and has remained unchanged since 1855. During the 19th century, Château du Tertre gained worldwide fame mainly thanks to the classification from 1855 that awarded the châteu de Margaux Grand Cru Class. In 1997, Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma bought the estate and invested in a large-scale general restructuring, returning the former noble personality to the Château du Tertre. The wines of Château du Tertre reflect the soul of that beautiful terroir.
