Ch. Marquis de Terme (0.75 L)
A very tannic, structured wine with an opaque purple color and a sweet creme de cassis nose intermixed with damp earth, vanilla, and licorice, this relatively massive wine has mouth-searing levels of tannin, medium body, and a very backward style that will require considerable patience from its buyers. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2025. Last tasted, 3/02.
