Notes
The 2020 Tertre-Rôteboeuf is stunning. It's not quite the 2016, but it comes awfully close. Who knows in time where this will go? A vibrant, explosive Saint-Émilion, the 2020 Tertre-Rôteboeuf sizzles with tension and energy. Black cherry, gravel, spice, espresso and chocolate stain the palate with tremendous intensity and sheer nuance. Tightly wound and full of energy, the 2020 is simply magnificent. What a wine!

Château Tertre Rôteboeuf

Château Tertre Rôteboeuf

Tertre Roteboeuf is situated in the commune of St.Laurent-des-Combes, a few kilometres south-east of Saint-Emilion. The 5.7 hectares of vineyards are located in a bowl shaped, southerly facing hillside. Many years ago, before vines were planted on this favourable spot, cattle would graze on the slopes; hence the Roteboeuf.

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.
