Francois Mitjavile's brilliant and unique wine has a different character from that of all its Saint Emilion rivals. Its distinctive personality and ability to age with grace and charm attracts many loyal supporters. This is also true of François' Cotes de Bourg estates: Roc de Cambes and Domaine de Cambes. These wines, like Tertre Roteboeuf are opulent, tender and characterful, and while Francois likes to talk of "degraded fruit", there is always a sense of tension and freshness. And therein lies the Mitjavilian paradox. Those who appreciate the house style will love these 2023s, they are wines with real charisma and personality.
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. 

The 2023 Tertre Roteboeuf is deep garnet-purple in colour. It erupts from the glass with powerful notes of plum preserves, juicy ripe blackberries, and liquorice leading to suggestions of charcoal, black olives, cumin seed, lavender oil, and crushed rocks with a waft of iron ore. The full-bodied palate vibrates with energetic black fruits and savoury accents, supported by beautifully velvety tannins and wonderful tension, finishing long and minerally. This is a stunning expression of the vintage! 
96-98 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

The juice, the salinity, the plump fruits and the pleasure bursting out of this glass are off the scale. Expect waves of fleshy red cherry, raspberry, squid ink, tar and smoked grilled caramel, tannins full of sinew. All picked in one day, Henri Mitjavile winemaker alongside his father François Mitjavile.

The 2023 Tertre R?teboeuf has a typical bouquet for this Saint-?milion that plays by its own rules: black cherries, dark chocolate, a touch of melted tar and liquorice, well-defined and actually gaining precision as it opens in the glass. The palate is very smooth and a little savoury in style, displaying hints of meat juices and white pepper, almost garrigue-like toward the finish. There's an appealing dash of black pepper on the aftertaste that seems to linger temptingly. Those who love this Chateau will love the 2023.
92-94 Neal Martin

The 2023 Le Tertre Roteboeuf offers up aromas of cr?me de cassis, blueberry liqueur, kirsch, espresso roast and creamy new oak, followed by a full-bodied, rich and layered palate that's sweet, dense and concentrated, somewhat reminiscent of Fran?ois Mitjaville's 2011.
