Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, minerals and smoked meat on the nose. Lush and sweet but in a reserved style; an extremely idiosyncratic wine that combines an almost syrah-like liqueur quality and very fresh acids that accentuate the wine's fruit. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins that seem finer-or at least lighter-than those of the massive 2005. A very lively style of Tertre-Roteboeuf with less obvious sweetness than many recent vintages here.
