Loads of oak. Loads of ripe red fruit. I can tell that in 10 years this will be seriously complex and still in a beautiful place. A bit premature at this stage but it has the stuffing for the long haul. Wouldn’t guess it was st Emilion at this stage but still has some of the character I find in older versions from This polarizing producer

I've just decided: this is my favourite right bank producer. Always delivers exactly what I like.

A top St Em @ £120 showing beautifully now in an average year but will definitely improve with time 👍

📍Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf 2011

🏵 94 points w/ potential for higher 😉

🍇 80% Merlot & 20% Cabernet Franc

🐮 Paired w/ Fillet Steak burger, beef tomato, cos lettuce, grilled courgette, cheddar cheese & horseradish sauce 😍

🍷 Blackened opaque ruby

👃 Crushed wet mineral rock & soggy gravel oozing though dollops of dark plum & blackberry w/ soft smoked oak, pencil lead, coffee, raspberry & rich cocoa butter

👄 Med body of rich ripe creamy & incredibly smooth silky plump spiced dark plum & black berry/currant fruit w/ lashings of cocoa + minerals & a touch of melted liquorice in slight dry tannins but very nicely balanced

🎯 Med+ black plump fruit infusion w/ touch dry minerals & a mocha/liquorice kick

香りは豊か。
シルクのような綺麗さもあるが
まだタンニンが粗い。
5年後?はもっと美味しいはず。
二日目、タンニンも落ち着いて来た。

One of the best wines we have opened in a while. Great dense Saint-Emilion beauty.
