2010 Tertre Roteboeuf From an assemblage of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 15.6% alcohol with a pH of 3.75. The wine does not feel hot. With massive amounts of glycerin, the wine offers exotic textures not found in other wines. The wine will be aged in 100% new oak barrels from Radoux. With a strong perfume filled with iron, oak, jammy red and black berries and fennel, this lush, unctuous, unique expression of St. Emilion is sweet, mouth filling, opulent and loaded with oaky, sweet, candied red berries, licorice and roasted fruits. 94-96 Pts
The property marches to the beat of their own drummer with their style of wine and approach to marketing. Tertre Rotebouef is always a fun visit. They remain one of the few properties that still hosts their tastings from barrels in their cellar.
