About Chateau Le Tertre Roteboeuf
Few in the wine world had heard of Tertre-Rôteboeuf prior to the 1980s, but since then, more than a few Bordeaux enthusiasts have discovered that iconoclast proprietor François Mitjavile makes one of the Bordeaux region's most flamboyantly full-blown wines.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2009
Dark red. Exotic dark raspberry, chocolate liqueur and smoky oak on the nose and palate. Lush, sweet and slightly decadent but not especially exotic for this wine. Round, sexy and plump but with no excess weight. In fact, this is rather suave and smooth, with good inner-palate energy. Finishes with supple, broad tannins and sneaky length. Not quite as creamy or intense as it appeared to be from barrel, but this should give pleasure over the next 10 or 12 years.
