Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-94

It has the kind of bouquet that creeps up on you. The texture of the tannins scream "Burgundy" on the entry, but there is a seam of graphite threaded through the dark berry fruit that brings you back to Bordeaux. It is not a powerful, extravagant or even a "gourmand" Tertre-Roteboeuf, but it exudes poise, harmony and that oft-forgotten word - drinkability.

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.
