More About This Wine
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.
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Very good deep red-ruby color. Fabulously expressive, superripe aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, maple syrup, toffee and roasted oak, with a floral topnote adding complexity. Thick, silky and amazingly sweet, with outstanding depth of flavor. As opulent and exotic as this wine is, it maintains lovely flavor definition. The toffee and smoky oak notes repeat on the palate. Suave tannins are buried in fruit. Wow!
