Tasting Notes

Score: 94+Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

This is the third vintage (1989 and 1990 were the other two) where Le Tertre-Roteboeuf exhibits a Le Pin-like exotic richness and opulence. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, and a compelling set of aromatics consisting of pain grille, ripe black cherry and cassis fruit, intermixed with truffles, mocha, and toffee. Dense and full-bodied, with layers of intensely ripe fruit, this plump, gorgeously pure, expansively flavored, multidimensional wine is even better out of bottle than it was in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018.

If wines were whores, Le Tertre-Roteboeuf would certainly be a potential candidate. These lavishly rich, sumptuously-textured, hedonistic wines hit all the sweet spots on the palate.

Score: 95Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (115), February 1998
