One of the wines of the vintage, the 2015 Tertre Rôteboeuf is simply magnificent. Unctuous and deep, with fabulous aromatic intensity, the 2015 blossoms in all directions. The choice to harvest late comes through in a wine that is both incredibly concentrated but surprisingly light on its feet. Finesse, class and pedigree. It's all right there in the glass. The 2015 Tertre Rôteboeuf is virtually impossible to spit. Let's leave it at that. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Le Tertre Roteboeuf was picked between 8 and 12 October, François Mitjavile alternating his pickers between here and Roc de Cambes. Like his other 2015s, there is a nascent Burgundy-like allure on the nose that is beguiling in purity and beautifully defined, with scents of small dark cherries, Indian ink and a touch of cassis, an undertow of minerals that will surely become more perceptible as the wine ages in bottle. The palate is harmonious and animated. You are immediately taken by the fineness of the tannin and its velvety smooth texture. It just glides effortlessly along, extremely persistent and tensile on the finish. This will be irresistible once in bottle, and yet there is the substance to see it age for many years. Yes - it's just a little bit magical. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

More nerve on the nose than the other wines in this stable. Very rich and round but with a structure. Very sweet but the tannins are much suppler. Spice and roundness on the palate. Something slightly brûlée but still very fresh. What fun! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2038

True to style: plush and approachable with an enticing aromatic complexity. Super ripe fruit but fresh and floral at the same time. Palate rich and suave but harmonious, the plentiful tannins smooth and long. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035

The heat of the year is certainly apparent here - as is the alcohol on the finish - but this is a wine that has plenty of structure and aromatic complexity too. It’s somewhere between a red Burgundy and a McLaren Vale Grenache in style. A total one-off. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
