Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, minerals and smoked meat on the nose. Lush and sweet but in a reserved style; an extremely idiosyncratic wine that combines an almost syrah-like liqueur quality and very fresh acids that accentuate the wine's fruit. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins that seem finer-or at least lighter-than those of the massive 2005. A very lively style of Tertre-Roteboeuf with less obvious sweetness than many recent vintages here.

Delicate, a little meaty but also some attractive red fruit. Rich and full of flavour without overripeness or overoaking. Lovely balance and length and naturalness, with integrated freshness to finish. Delicious and my favourite wine of the tasting. (JH)

The bottled 2004 Tertre Roteboeuf is a very good effort for the vintage, revealing a Chateauneuf du Pape-like kirsch liqueur note intermixed with hints of beef blood, sweet herbs, and licorice. It will not make anyone forget the monumental 2000 or top-notch 1998, but it is a well-made effort displaying a medium-bodied, lush finish with noticeable tannin. It appears to be at an incongruous stage of development, showing both sweetness and hardness, somewhat like the classic Chinese play of sweet versus sour. It reminds me of a lighter version of Terte Roteboeuf's successful 1994. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.
