    The 2016 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare between 14-18 October. This year I was hosted by Francois' daughter Nina Mitjavile, who has been working alongside her father for several years. It has a wonderful bouquet, very pure and fresh. I anticipated that Francois Mitjavile might have been tempted to pick a little later like others, but it was an assiduous decision to have the fruit in the vat by the 18 October and lock in that freshness. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, extremely well judged acidity, the new oak present at the moment but in proportion with the fruit. This is a stylish Le Tertre-Roteboeuf, very sensual and luxuriant with layers of crushed strawberry, blood oranges and raspberry fruit. In a word...irresistible.

  • 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.
