Prior to being acquired in 1997 by Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma du Tertre was an 1855 classed growth claret that was most definitely flying under the radar. Situated in the village of Arsac the wines come under the Margaux appellation also home to some of Bordeaux's most famous and expensive wines. The estate runs to an extent of 50 hectares and, being on a shallow hill, is one of the most elevated sites in the appellation.
With a string of very well received vinatges from the early 2000s the Château has now firmly cemented its reputation im Margaux. A particular characteristic being that with a relatively high proportion of Merlot for the Left Bank the wines have been among the early maturers of the appellation.
