    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Le Tertre Rôteboeuf, St Emilion Grand Cru, 2000
    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2020 Tertre-Rôteboeuf retains its Côte d'Or leanings on the nose: red cherries, kirsch and vanilla pod, with subtle floral aromas surfacing with aeration. Very pure and perhaps less flamboyant than the previous vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with very polished tannins, exquisite balance, and touches of allspice and thyme infusing the red fruit. Not a single hard edge here; it feels long and persistent toward the finish, completing a very seductive Saint-Émilion that will give pleasure over the next 20 years.

    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.
