2020, Château Tertre Roteboeuf, SAINT-ÉMILION Grand Cru
$285.20 inc. GST
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
This is a powerful, deeply focused and intense. Plenty of spice, cassis pastille, intense muscular tannins, fairly closed and austere right now, but a real sense of lift and juice becomes clear after 10 minutes of opening in the glass. Harvest began on September 21st, the earliest since Mitjavile arrived at the estate. Recently had the beautiful 1998 of Tertre Roteboeuf, and it is easy to see that this vintage also will allow the limestone terroir to become clearer with bottle age. 95/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
