International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Deep, bright ruby. Wild, highly nuanced nose combines black cherry, raspberry, roast coffee, smoked meat, exotic spices and pepper notes. Incredibly sweet and rich in the mouth; creamy, confectionery fruit caresses the palate. Finishes with lush, completely ripe tannins and explosive fruit flavors. One of the superstars of the vintage; a wine that will give pleasure early and age well.

Jancis Robinson Author: Julia Harding MW

Perfumed, even a little exotic and a hint of sweet brambly smoke like a waft of weed in the air (not uncommon in my part of London). Still has some fresh red fruit on the palate, immensely silky and complex. Some pepper and sweet decay (in an attractive way). Idiosyncratic Bordeaux but delicious. (JH)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A dramatic, flamboyant nose of roasted espresso intermixed with chocolate fudge, blackberries, Asian spices, and kirsch jumps from the glass of this ostentatious effort. Full-bodied and layered, with an unctuous texture, gorgeous purity, and an undeniable hedonistic explosion of fruit and glycerin, it can be drunk now, or cellared for 15+ years. To my taste, it is the finest Le Tertre-Roteboeuf since 1990.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Aromas of plums, berries and meat, with hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with loads of sweet fruit and round tannins. Long and juicy. Hard not to drink now. '88/'98 Bordeaux retrospective (2008).

Wow. Dark purple in color the wine offers notes of coco and cedar on the nose and palate. Ripe dark blackberry fruit flavors Long, long finish. This is a fantastic St. Emilion.
