Wine Critic Reviews:

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Tertre-Roteboeuf ‘09 has a very sophisticated bouquet with beautifully integrated oak. It is seamless and very refined. The palate is svelte and harmonious – not a hair out of place. Refined and focused with layers of pure, succulent red cherry and cranberry fruit on the plush finish. So much panache is suffused into this wine. This is a beautiful Saint Emilion from the inimitable Francois Mitjavile. Tasted January 2013.

The 2009 Le Tertre-Rôteboeuf has a classically styled nose in the context of the vintage, almost Left Bank in style with touches of pencil box infusing the brambly red berry fruit. There is just a distant tang of autumn bonfire. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, quite tight and structured with a light peppery, cedar-tinged finish that lingers impressively in the mouth. Tasted several times before, this remains an outstanding Saint-Émilion from François Mitjavile. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Roteboeuf: The hillside slope that houses Tertre Roteboeuf's beautiful vineyards creates excellent drainage, which, combined with the area's cooler-than-average terroir, creates a unique environment for growing grapes. Their methods may seem unusual, but once you taste their mind-expanding wines, any doubts you might have had slip away like dust in the wind. Patience is a virtue when it comes to Roteboeuf's wines, as it's advisable to wait for up to ten years if you want to experience the wine in its prime. Should you find a bottle in this condition, you can expect a profoundly seductive, silky-smooth stunner, and a colorful collage of fragrant, potent aromatics. It's all about finesse and subtlety, as the wine slowly unfolds and reveals an almost incomprehensible complexity. It's a thrill ride for your senses and a puzzle for your mind.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
