Château du Tertre, Margaux 1979

Chateau du Tertre 1979

Mature, luminescent garnet red color, pink-orange rim.  Organic, tertiary nose of beaten leather, spent tobacco leaf, compost and pencil.  Beetroot.  A sweet earthiness.  On the palate, this is assiduous and savory, edged in privet, rust, boullion.  Firm and elegantly proportioned.  Lunar, tapered Margaux.  Will keep well.  Drink soon.
