Estate Notes

Château Le Tertre Roteboeuf 1990 comes from a truly great Bordeaux vintage, a class act from the right bank.

François Mitjavile is the owner of this five and a half hectare estate which literally translates to 'the hill of the burping beef' referring to the oxen that used to work the steep hills of the land on the edge of the Saint-Émilion limestone plateau.

François produces just 2,000 cases a year of this rich, concentrated, fruity styled wine which, in recent vintages has wooed many leading wine critics, is good enough to be re-classified as a Grand Cru Classé or even a Premier Cru Classé.

Reviews

"The 1990 has been so stunning the last several times I tasted it..."Deep garnet core with light brick rim. A very rich, alcoholic, slightly pruney, raisiny, tarry nose. The palate is very rich, good acidity, slightly porty but with a citrus undertow. The palate is very tannic, full-bodied and complex. Raisin, touch of tinned prune and orange zest, becoming spicier towards the tarry, chestnut-flavored finish. Very decadent and burly…" eRobertParker.com
