Château Le Tertre Rôteboeuf

Château Roc de Cambes

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Côtes de Bourg is a Bordeaux region that many don’t know that delivers incredible wines for a fraction of the price of other regions. This higher priced bottle at £40+ sure delivers an amazing wine that would be triple in St Emilion & made by the folks from Tertre Rôteboeuf & called “the junior Tertre Rôteboeuf“ 👍 Drinking great young but will improve 😉

I think this bottle was either in a dumb phase or was just slightly off. Aromatic notes of leather, bay leaf, old cherries and earth. Still some tannin but seems slightly evolved for its age...I would have thought this was at least 7-10yrs older. Graphite, more leather, and very underripe red fruits on the palate. — 2 months ago

@Stephen Pierron I own three vintages of Chateau Giscours; 05, 09 & 10. I like this Chateau in good vintages. I find the fruit and the overall quality to be better than Chateau du Tertre. I find Tertre to be astringent and bitty and lacking elegance with under 15-20 years of bottle age. Where as Giscours has shown me those qualities in their good vintages. They can be inconsistent in lesser vintages. I should also note that I like my Cabernets (old & new world) on the well aged side. I find the Bordeaux drinking windows given out by the well know professional critics to be very conservative. IMHO, if I were to pay attention to those suggested Bordeaux drinking windows, I would look to the backside of them in opening my bottles. Cheers! 🍷

@David T Thank you sir! I don't think I could avoid the temptation if I had an 09 Giscours in my cellar. 15 reminds me so much of 09. Same with 10 and 16. Guess that is where we have different palates... I an not a huge fan of aged wine over 10+years... I suppose it is an acquired taste. I would be intrigued to try an old Burgundy from a HQP. Agree the aging windows are fairly conservative for Bordeaux....best to buy a case (Drink 6 and Hold 6) 😀🍷 Cheers!!

Everyone should drink there wines how they like them. I had my first well made and aged Cabernet in the later 90’s. I took one sip and my whole body reacted. I remember having one immediate thought, it was, I am in so much trouble. Because at that minute, I knew I was going to invest a lot of money into aging wine. And, that’s what happened. I don’t buy 6 of anything unless it is a really good value and well surpasses its price point. There is just too much good wine, from so many good producers all over the world to buy more than 2-3 bottles of a particular producers vintage. But, everyone should drink, buy what they like without question and at any year(s) of bottle age.
