The Story

The vineyard is planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc on complex clay and limestone soils and sub-soils. Francois Mitjavile, who took the reigns in 1978 is a pensive character with an unquestionable talent for producing great, thought provoking wines. He is quite happy to share many of his techniques. He unashamedly harvests late and there is often a hint of degradation to the fruit. His wines possess a real character and soul; they are intellectual wines that never fail to satisfy.

Written Notes

Tasted on the 9th December 2016. I felt that this wine was on downhill compared to last time. Tasty and concentrated on the palate with sweetness, deep and with sweet and caressing aftertaste.

 Izak Litwar / The most important Scandinavian Bordeaux Critic, Pro (Denmark)  tasted  Tertre Roteboeuf 1990  ( Château Tertre Roteboeuf )

Tasted four times - last time in November 2011. It 's been 11 years ago since I tasted it for third time. Still youthful with big and sparkling nose of black fruit (black berries), perfectly ripe one. Chewy and meaty on the palate with striking freshness, balance and caressing aftertaste. Striking depth and structure with plenty of perfectly ripe blackberries/blueberries on the palate. Awesome wine and sure bet for keeping 20 years more!
