It was in the 16th century that Thomas de Montaigne, the brother of the famous humanist, settled on the property. In the 17th century, the Ségur family took over.
The famous glassmaker Mitchell then moved to the estate and had the château built there in 1736. He saw this as an opportunity to combine his profession with the potential of his vines. The castle developed during this period. In the 19th century Henri de Koenigswaller, owner at the time, saw his productions be classified in 1855, among the Premier Grands Crus Classés.
The Capbern-Gasquetton family took over the Château de Tertre in 1961 and undertook major renovations. The owners separated in 1997 from the estate, which was acquired by Eric Albada Jelgersma. He undertakes work to restructure the operation of the vineyard. As such, a new cellar with tapered concrete vats will be installed.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 du Tertre is a little reduced to begin, opening out to notions of baked plums, warm cassis and dried mulberries with hints of tar, chargrill and black pepper plus a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied with a firm, chewy frame, it has a good amount of baked berries and herbal flavors with a sage-laced finish.
