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.
90-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Deep ruby-red. Intense aromas of red cherry, coffee and mocha. Spicy and sweet, with ripe red fruit, cassis and mocha flavors that come across as tighter and less immediately sexy than in most vintages. Finishes smooth and long, with very good clarity and cut. This will need plenty of time to develop more creamy flesh, but it's yet another outstanding Le Tertre Roeteboeuf in the making. For the first time in years, owner François Mitjaville showed this wine before his Cote de Bourg property Roc de Cambes, which, though less complex, is just as voluptuous a wine in 2011 as its much more famous stablemate.
