Estate Notes

Château Le Tertre Roteboeuf, 2011 was purchased 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 2000 cases a year of this rich, concentrated, fruity styled wine which, in recent vintages has wooed many leading wine critics. It is good enough to be re-classified as a Grand Cru Classé or even a Premier Cru Classé in our opinion.

Reviews

“Knockout nose combines blackcurrant, blackberry, coffee, menthol, graphite and licorice. The palate offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and penetrating power, with expansive, fine-grained flavors of black and red fruits, mint and sweet spices. The very long, rising finish conveys an impression of energy and great finesse, thanks to harmonious acids that lift and extend the wine's fruit and spices. One of the wines of the vintage: lay this one down.” Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
