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.

Saturated ruby. Sexy floral nose combines red cherry, candied rose and toffee, along with a spicy topnote. Sweet, fine-grained and dense, offering bright blackcurrant and red cherry flavors plus a touch of vanilla. Finishes with strong spicy cut, excellent length, and youthfully gripping tannins. This has fleshed out since the Primeurs, and though it will never rank as one of the most exotic or lush Tertre Roteboeufs, it's another outstanding wine from Francois Mitjavile in what is a difficult vintage.
