International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($149; bottled in August of 2002) Bright ruby-red. A cocktail of roasted berries and cherry on the nose, with superripe notes of espresso, truffle and spices. Sweet, dense and very deep, with voluptuous flavors of red berries, black cherry, chocolate, meat and spices. Pliant and extremely generous wine with lovely fruit. Finishes with huge, ripe, mouthcoating tannins and intriguing notes of minerals and torrefaction.

Mid ruby with some shading. Much more complex and exotic on the nose than its peers. Very sweet palate entry and more than a hint of something halfway between a Chambolle and a Barolo. Strange! But a welcome challenge. Lots of jazzy ripeness even if the tannins and acidity are yet to be fully resolved. I'd guess this still has quite a bit to give. Though without being modern, this certainly isn't classic.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 189

My all-time favorite vintage of Tertre-Roteboeuf, the 2000 should age much more consistently than the rather irregular 1990 or the top-notch 1989. The 2005 should give it a run for its money down the road, but at present, this wine is performing fabulously well. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with notes of kirsch liqueur and licorice. This St.-Emilion could pass for a great Chateauneuf du Pape or top-notch Musigny, although it has more power and depth than a burgundy, and none of the peppery/garrigue characteristics of a Rhone. Nevertheless, there is a sweet character from the high glycerin level as I suspect the alcohol content exceeds 14%. Velvety textured and full-bodied, but surprisingly youthful, this stunningly rich wine can be drunk now, but promises to last another two decades.

Daniel B Trust Rating: 99 Tasted On: 03/01/2003 Drink Dates: 2008-2015

A huge yet elegant mouthful of wine. Immature aromas of plum, smoke, cassis, charcoal, and roasted salmon skin. Plenty of fruit and tannins on palate. Hedonism in a bottle. Will drink well early (maturity 2008 to 2015). Not as good as the 89, 90 or 98. Reminds me of a more forward 88 with a touch more concentration.
