We are very fortunate to receive allocations of Francois Mitjavile's sought after wines, especially those from his St. Emilion estate, Château Le Tertre Rôteboeuf. This small 6 ha estate could not be more different from the grandeur of neighbours like Pavie, with its monolithic new winery, and yet we love the wines equally.
The cask sample of the 2020 which we tasted this spring exploded from the glass, with complex notes of black cherry, mocha coffee, spice and liquorice; and had a dense palate, savoury, intense and layered with crushed rock character and powerful tannins. It seemed like a wine still settling into its final form, but whatever shape it takes, we know that it will be an exciting one. Jane Anson scores Le Tertre Rôteboeuf 95 points, hinting at greater things to come when the wine is in bottle.
Landing in spring 2023.
