Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Intense aromas of Indian spices, vanilla and chocolate with lots of berry. Full-bodied, round and silky with a long, gorgeous finish. Seductive.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($85) Good bright, dark red. Roasted aromas of dark berries, musky espresso and coffee. Dense and rich but sappy, with a chewy, tactile quality rare for a 2003 from the right bank. There's a roasted character to the exotic, sweet flavors of red fruits and tobacco, but also plenty of energy for the vintage. Boasts a voluptuous thickness of texture and finishes extremely long, with sweet tannins. The fruit became even more explosive as the wine opened in the glass. Still, I'd opt for enjoying this wine over the next decade.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

The heady, open-knit, expansive, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2003 reveals notes of sweet chocolate and black cherry liqueur as well as low acidity, elevated alcohol and glycerin, and a loosely knit, nearly flabby style. It is a charming, sensual St.-Emilion.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
