Fully saturated ruby. Knockout nose combines blackcurrant, blackberry, coffee, menthol, graphite and licorice. The palate offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and penetrating power, with expansive, fine-grained flavors of black and red fruits, mint and sweet spices. The very long, rising finish conveys an impression of energy and great finesse, thanks to harmonious acids that lift and extend the wine's fruit and spices. One of the wines of the vintage: lay this one down.

About This Producer


A virtual unknown in the world of great wine until the mid-1980s, Chateau Tertre Robeboeuf became something of a sensation after businessman-turned-winemaker Francois Mitjavile took the reins of his wife's inherited property. He quit his job at his family's haulage firm, spent two years interning at Chateau Figeac, and turned the chateau around. The name of the vineyard comes from the oxen that are used to plow the land. Literally translated, it means "hill of the belching beef." Never mind the bovines, the Merlot/Cabernet Franc blends are deeply endowed with plump plum and smoky earth and oak that seamlessly integrates with the opulent core.
