A very powerful, concentrated Tertre Roteboeuf, but completely closed at present, this wine has a deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet nose of black cherry and plum jam intermixed with hints of vanilla, chocolate, and espresso roast. The wine is medium to full-bodied, quite tannic, powerful, and one of the more backward wines I have tasted at this estate. It requires much more cellaring than I originally anticipated. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. (RP) 94+
Very good deep red-ruby color. Fabulously expressive, superripe aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, maple syrup, toffee and roasted oak, with a floral topnote adding complexity. Thick, silky and amazingly sweet, with outstanding depth of flavor. As opulent and exotic as this wine is, it maintains lovely flavor definition. The toffee and smoky oak notes repeat on the palate. Suave tannins are buried in fruit. Wow! (ST)
Lots of plum and hints of cedar and cigar box on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, rich, beautiful finish. A wonderful wine. (JS, Web Only—2007)
Masses of bottle deposit on the inside of this particular bottle and lots of fine sediment too. Dark blackish ruby. Mature rim. Balsam notes on the nose - seriously appetising - and then notable acidity on the palate. Not too much but this is still fresh with tannins largely dissolved. Heady and rather sumptuous. This is a good time to be drinking this wine! Very savoury and tasty. Rich but not sweet. Complete. 17.5/20 points (JR)
