2015 Chateau Le Tertre-Roteboeuf Saint Emilion Grand Cru [V-97pts]

Tasting Notes:

97 points Vinous

A heady, exotic wine, the 2015 Tertre-Rôteboeuf exudes richness and intensity. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, espresso, chocolate, spice and licorice infuse this voluptuous, racy Saint-Émilion. Dense, powerful and explosive, it just gets better and better with time in the glass. Super-ripe cherry and plum fruit are laced with scents of tobacco, licorice, incense and white truffle that add nuance. What a gorgeous wine this is! Proprietor François Mitjavile isn’t afraid to be a contrarian. While many estates opt for shorter aging, Mitjavile gives his wine two full years in 100% new oak and also keeps the cellar on the warm side during the winter months. The 2015 was bottled in September 2017. (AG) (2/2018)

Barrel Sample. While the tannins are firm and dry, the fruit is just as important. The black plum-skin flavors are rich and dense, while the wine ends on a lifted note of black currant. (RV) (4/2016)
