Notes

As one would expect from Francois Mitjavile's flagship wine, this is exotic and intoxicating. Produced from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this is classic Tertre Roteboeuf, with degraded fruit, the notion of smoky bacon and floral plums. At this stage the oak is quite dominant with lots of coconut and mahogany notes. The fruit is supple and veers towards the liqueury red fruit, Kirsch and some ripe griotte. Very much the house style, despite the opulent fruit, there is tension, a refreshing acidity all wrapped up in lavish tannins. Still St Emilions outlier.

Notes
The 2022 Tertre-Rôteboeuf is very deep in color. It has a very intense bouquet with Dorset plum, raspberry coulis, touches of fennel and fresh fig. Fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of structure, pure mulberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit, white pepper and curry leaf. It is a more exotic Saint-Émilion, but I would not describe it as exotic. It's just very Tertre-Rôteboeuf !

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.
