Tasting Notes

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

A dramatic, flamboyant nose of roasted espresso intermixed with chocolate fudge, blackberries, Asian spices, and kirsch jumps from the glass of this ostentatious effort. Full-bodied and layered, with an unctuous texture, gorgeous purity, and an undeniable hedonistic explosion of fruit and glycerin, it can be drunk now, or cellared for 15+ years. To my taste, it is the finest Le Tertre-Roteboeuf since 1990. But watch out for the 2000!

Score: 92/95Robert Parker, Wine Buyers Guide (5), January 2000

Dark and healthy colour. Savoury nose with velvety full meaty development. Round and fully mature with fine sandy tannins on the finish. Not complete but a rewarding drink already. Quite strong Cabernet influence. Sweet.
