Estate Notes

Château Le Tertre Roteboeuf 1995 is a big, powerful vintage for this Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé, which was purchased in excellent condition in its original wooden case.

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

"A very powerful, concentrated Tertre Roteboeuf, but completely closed at present, this wine has a deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet nose of black cherry and plum jam intermixed with hints of vanilla, chocolate, and espresso roast. The wine is medium to full-bodied, quite tannic, powerful, and one of the more backward wines I have tasted at this estate." eRobertParker.com
