In 1762, at the time of his marriage, Marquis de Terme, gave his name to the wine-growing property emanating from his wife's dowry. The fame of this cru was initiated by Thomas Jefferson in 1787. On the way to becoming President of the United States, he visited Bordeaux and ranked Château Marquis de Terme among the sixteen best wines he had ever tasted. The property became a classified Grand Cru in 1855.
Since 1935, the estate has belonged to the Sénéclauze family, whose generations succeed one another to ensure its development.
In 2009, the owners appointed Ludovic David to manage the château. A change that will give the starting point for a new approach to wines and many technical, viticultural and architectural innovations. The plot management of the vineyard respects ecological balances and the environment. Manual harvesting is carefully sorted so that only the finest bunches are brought to the vat room.
A Grand Cru Classé with a human dimension, which expresses its modernity while respecting tradition.
