    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    The texture is the first thing that strikes you here, with pummice stone salinity and an unfussy, luxurious uncurling of flavours that makes you want to pull up a chair and take your time. Plenty of tar, cloves, liqourice and grilled cedar, alongside blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with pomegranate and orange peel bitterness, not avoiding but leaning into the vintage conditions. Confident and full of limestone character, just a beautiful wine from the Mitjavile family in a year full of paradox. Harvest October 1-2. 100% new oak, medium plus toasting, which is where this tar grilling comes from. No crushing of the grapes but full destemming, no cold soaks, unfiltered until just before bottling. 100% of the vineyard always in Tertre Roteboeuf.

    The 2022 Tertre Roteboeuf is made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, harvested on 1 October. Deep garnet-purple in color, it storms out of the glass with powerful notes of preserved plums, blueberry compote, and fruitcake, followed by suggestions of star anise, cedar chest, wilted roses, and unsmoked cigars. The super-concentrated, opulent, full-bodied palate is jam packed with black fruit preserves and exotic spices, maintaining impressive freshness and finishing very long with a mineral lift. This is a very different expression of the vintage - so Tertre Roteboeuf! pH 3.80-3.85.

    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

    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.
