Château Le Tertre Rôteboeuf, St Emilion Grand Cru, 2018

Tasting Note:

This year's Tertre Roteboeuf is not for the faint hearted. It weighs in with a whopping 16.2% of alcohol and it displays lots strange fermentation aromas. It is rather funky and yeasty, with strange lactic sour milk notes - it is downright weird at this stage; however, we'd be very remiss to right this off. Francois' wines have a wonderful track record and we'd be surprised if this didn't resolve during élevage. Patience and benefit of the doubt required.
