The 2022 Marquis de Terme was tasted twice with two differing impressions. The first has a rich and quite opulent nose, a bit hazy due to the alcohol, with black cherries, cassis and just a touch of eau-de-vie. A second bottle demonstrates much more clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with thick but dry tannins, a bit austere and I am seeking more fruit to balance out the finish. The second sample provided that, although it still feels a bit “solid” and missing a bit of grace. I hope to see an uptick in quality come bottling. NB This will be bottled under Diam.
Anticipated maturity: 2029-2049
