Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
One of my best scoring wines En Primeur, and absolutely delivering now in bottle. Juicy damson and cassis fruits, drawn out tannins that are fine but with grip, orange peel, blueberry, cassis, smoked earth, cloves and liqourice bud. Grilled cedar swirls through the palate, adding sweetness but well matched by the fruit, and this has layers of flavour, with the acidity of the vintage turned into sappy lift. Grapes destemmed but not crushed, 16% press wine, 100% new oak and 100% 1st wine, as ever.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2021 Tertre Roteboeuf is a little reduced to begin, soon giving way to black fruit notes of fresh blackberries, black cherries, and mulberries, followed by suggestions of tar, violets, licorice, and cracked black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is firm and grainy with many finely-packed layers of black fruits and earthy notions, framed by ripe, rounded tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing on a lingering black truffle note.

The 2021 Tertre-Rôteboeuf has gained some intensity since tasting it from barrel. Well-defined black cherries, iodine, violet and light graphite notes emanate from the 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is medium-bodied with a svelte opening, very harmonious with fine depth. Again, as I wrote out of barrel, it is a “gourmand” Saint-Émilion with a nicely structured, slightly savory finish. Excellent.

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.
