Château Le Tertre Rôteboeuf, St Emilion Grand Cru, 2017

Tasting Note:

As one would expect from Francois Mitjavile's flagship wine, this is exotic and intoxicating. There is a darker profile than Roc de Cambes with more black fruit, spice and savoury notes. It is still tremendously opulent and layered with swathes of crème de cassis, tobacco, mocha, sweet scorched earth, damsons, decadent soaked strawberry compote and garrigue. This is slightly in the shadow of Domaine de Cambes at this stage, but it is sprawling and hedonistic, a classic Tertre Roteboeuf!
