Tertre Roteboeuf Premier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal:Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. There is a Burgundy-like purity on the nose with ripe cassis, fresh strawberry and blueberry aromas, intermingling with vanillary new oak that is very seductive. The palate is very well balanced. This shows so much panache and harmony with a caressing, velvety smooth finish that cloaks the mouth in dark fruit flavours. This is a superb Saint Emilion from Francois Mitjavile who seems to be on a winning streak with recent vintages. Tasted January 2012." 5/12. 94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media:"Saturated medium ruby. Exotic aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat, roast coffee and minerals; this has to be the sexiest nose of the vintage. Lush, sweet and silky, like a wave of dark berries, smoke and minerals washing over the palate. Finishes with sweet tannins and palate-staining persistence. This may not last forever (Tertre-Roteboeuf has a record for mid-term aging), but for tickling your G-spot over the next 10 or 12 years, this is pretty much of a sure thing." 7/11.
