Château Tertre Roteboeuf Grand Cru (2016)

New

Le Tertre Rôteboeuf is one of the unsung stars of St-Émilion often overlooked in favour of its more glamorous neighbours, yet since 1989, this 6-hectare estate has been producing some of the appellation’s finest wines. A Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc making up the rest of the blend. Rich and flamboyant, packed with black fruit, dark chocolate and spice notes.

    Francois Mitjavile’s tiny 6 hectare estate, planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, breaks the St Emilion mould. It offers a very different style to the rest of the appellation but is entirely worthy of its almost cult-like following. Not for the faint hearted at comfortably over 15% alcohol, but it is to Francois’s eternal credit that tasting this wine, you are oblivious to the alcohol. It is the complexity of layered sweet autumnal fruits and soft rounded tannins that provide the overall sensation. Francois rates this amongst the very best he has produced.
