The 2000 Tertre Roteboeuf is a stunningly rich, 98 point St Emilion that makes a fabulous addition to even the most well-stocked cellar.
Tertre Roteboeuf is about as esoteric as St Emilion gets. A cult wine seldom seen in any quantity, it comes from a very special vineyard site that is slightly cooler parcel than that of neighbouring Troplong Mondot and Pavie. This has a profound effect on the wine and allows the fruit more time on the vine, giving it the perfect balance of power, concentration and richness.
It means a pure vintage depiction that can be distinguished from other, more modern style, St Emilions. The Tertre Roteboeuf is characterful, complex, extremely refined and a great wine to own.

My all-time favorite vintage of Tertre-Roteboeuf, the 2000 should age much more consistently than the rather irregular 1990 or the top-notch 1989. The 2005 should give it a run for its money down the road, but at present, this wine is performing fabulously well. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with notes of kirsch liqueur and licorice. This St.-Emilion could pass for a great Chateauneuf du Pape or top-notch Musigny, although it has more power and depth than a burgundy, and none of the peppery/garrigue characteristics of a Rhone. Nevertheless, there is a sweet character from the high glycerin level as I suspect the alcohol content exceeds 14%. Velvety textured and full-bodied, but surprisingly youthful, this stunningly rich wine can be drunk now, but promises to last another two decades. Wine Advocate.June, 2010
