Marquis de Terme
The fame of Marquis de Terme dates back to Thomas Jefferson!
Before being elected President of the United States, Jefferson visited Bordeaux in 1787 and listed Château Marquis de Terme as one of the sixteen best wines he had tasted. The château was also included among the great growths in the famous 1855 classification.
Successive generations have worked hard to ensure the development of the property that has belonged to the Sénéclauze family since 1935.
In 2009, the owners appointed Ludovic David as General Manager. He introduced a new approach to winemaking by implementing numerous technical, viticultural, and architectural innovations.
The vineyard is managed on a plot-by-plot basis with strong respect for the environment. The grapes are all picked by hand and meticulously sorted so that only the most beautiful berries make their way into the vats.
As a classified growth that is managed on a human scale Château Marquis de Terme displays the best of both traditional and modern winemaking methods.
