    Le Tertre Roteboeuf

    Deeply passionate, Francois Mitjavile makes Tertre-Rotebouef - a ‘garage wine’ with real character. The small estate on a limestone slope in Saint Emilion has terroir of a very high standard. Very low yields give the wine intense concentration of fruit and, combined with a lavish use of oak, makes this a rich and sumptuous wine.

    Tertre Roteboeuf 1990 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (75-94)

    Early in its life, this wine was close to perfection, but two bottles drunk recently from my cellar show a slight maderized quality, some flawed acetone notes, and a disjointed style suggesting it was falling apart. I am at a loss to understand this decline as it was showing fabulously well just a few years ago. There is still lots of viscosity, and the wine is full-bodied, but two examples of an oxidized, flawed wine are disheartening.A third bottle from the exact same case that the first two bottles came from proved to be a completely different species altogether. This is the 1990 Tertre Roteboeuf I thought had been made. I have no explanation for such enormous bottle variation, but the third bottle had a beautiful dark plum/garnet color to the rim, with just a hint of lightening, a sensationally exotic nose of roasted coffee, melted chocolate, herbs, and sweet kirsch and plum. Even a hint of fig made it into the wine’s gorgeous aromatic display. In the mouth, the wine was full-bodied, powerful, rich, still showing some tannin to shed, but the sweetness, expansiveness, exuberance, and overall purity were stunning. This wine, which had the same level of ullage as the other two, was a completely different experience than the two bottles that had a maderized characteristic. Who knows, but I am certainly hoping the rest of my stash resembles the third bottle rather than the first two. If that’s the case, then it should continue to drink well for at least another 10-12 years. Release price: ($550.00/case)

    Tertre Roteboeuf 2004 (1x300cl)

    Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (92)

    Bright ruby-red. Cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate aromas. Sweet, dense and very young, with an almost exotic liqueur-like character but also terrific vibrancy and sap. Complicating notes of licorice and game. There's something downright Burgundian about this wine. Finishes firmly tannic and very long, with terrific grip. An exhilarating sample, and a wine that gives every indication of having the backbone and ripeness to develop slowly and well in bottle.

    Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (96)

    (an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet franc) Pretty medium ruby-red color. Captivating, drop-dead gorgeous nose conveys extremely pure and intense aromas of red berries, cinnamon, minerals, cedar and mirabelle, all lifted by a delicate smoky nuance: grand cru Burgundy made in Bordeaux Then silky-smooth on the palate, with a busload of red fruit flavors (fresh raspberry, red cherry syrup, redcurrant jelly) complicated by sweet spice and mineral notes. Harmonious acids somehow keep this very rich, hedonistic wine light and lively on the palate, and draw out the finish. The sexy and extremely sweet red berry flavors resonate long and loud on the utterly silky back end. This is so charming and expressive today that I wonder how many bottles of this elixir will make it to a ripe old age.

    Vinous - Stephen Tanzer (96+)

    Saturated ruby. Deep aromas of red and black fruits, violet, gunflint, licorice and bitter chocolate, complemented by a sexy oak-derived note of hickory smoke. Large-scaled and sweet, but with terrific precision and refinement to the flavors of dark berries, chocolate, licorice and minerals. Finishes polished and long. Not as opulent or exotic as the 2009, but offers exceptional sweetness and size while managing to maintain impressive verve and thrust. A great 2010.

    Vinous - Ian D'Agata (90-93)

    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.

    The 2015 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is deep garnet-purple in color with a gorgeous nose of baked cherries, warm plums, crème de cassis and mulberries with touches of rare beef, violets, mocha, Chinese five spice and fertile loam. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and with firm, grainy tannins, it has seamless freshness and a very long, spicy finish. This is wonderfully seamless and harmonious.

The medium to full-bodied palate is very firm with ripe, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness and depth, finishing very long with some exotic spices coming through.

    Jeb Dunnuck (97-99)

    The 2018 Tertre Roteboeuf is another powerful, opulent wine from this estate that reminds me a little of the 2005 with its density and tannic structure. Cassis, graphite, black raspberries, and tons of classy oak all emerge from this full-bodied beauty that has tons of fruit and texture, a stacked mid-palate, and a big finish. It’s a massive, sumptuous, and lavishly oaked and fruited wine that’s going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for 25-30 years.

    Tertre Roteboeuf 2019 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (97)

    The 2019 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a terrific success from the Mitjaville family. This amphitheatrical vineyard on the clay-limestone slopes of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, planted with low, cordon-trained vines, has delivered a striking wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries and cherries mingled with notions of violets, cigar box, sweet spices and loamy soil. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, velvety tannins and lively acids, it will richly reward a decade and more of bottle age. Interestingly, proprietor François Mitjaville contended that 2019's distribution of rainfall had tended to invert the usual stylistic distinction between Tertre Roteboeuf and Roc de Cambes, his wine from the Côtes de Bourg; yet, on the day of our tasting, geology trumped weather, because as usual the former was more sensual, the latter blockier and more structured.

    Vinous - Neal Martin (94-96)

    The 2021 Tertre-Rôteboeuf was tasted directly from barrel à la Bourgogne. (Why don't more châteaux do this, if logistically convenient?) It has a comparatively less explosive, gourmand bouquet compared to vintages that I have tasted at this stage in recent years, featuring dark berries, hints of blueberry, iris flower and an underlying mineralité that only surfaces after 3–4 minutes in the glass. The harmonious palate is an absolute stunner. It delivers brilliant delineation and purity, one of the most energetic Tertre-Rôtebouefs that I have encountered, and a dash of black pepper on the finish. I have to confess: I had to have a sneaky sip of this.
