Tasted at the chateau directly from barrel, the Le Tertre-Roteboeuf has wonderful definition on the nose, much more composed and controlled than the 2009 when tasted last year. Pure black cherries, bilberry and crushed stone, great precision here, much more control of the Merlot than I was anticipating. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb acidity, layers of crisp ripe berried fruits suffused with tension and mineralité. Focused and linear towards the Burgundy like, silky finish in keeping with the vintage, this is an outstanding Le Tertre-Roteboeuf for long-term ageing. By the way...it has 15.7% alcohol (and a pH 3.64.)! Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

15% Cabernet Franc, 85% Merlot. Picked 12 Oct. Very rich and sweet. Much bigger and more brutal than the Roc. Very sweet start, then chewy. Quite awkward at the moment, with rich undertow. Funky, completely unlike anything else! Not as much freshness as the Roc. Just a bit too sweet... A statement but very atypical for 2010. Where’s the freshness? Dense and drying on the end. A bit thick and too sweet to match food? 15.6% Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

True to style. Suave, exotic with smooth, caressing tannins. Owner François Mitjavile, has, as usual, pushed the ripeness to the confit stage but the terroir and vintage give the requisite lift and freshness. His fans won't be disappointed. Drink 2018-2030. (18 points) James Lawther, decanter.com

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 black and red berries, licorice and roasted fruits. 95-97 Pts Jeff Leve winecellarinsider.com
