    June 21, 2022 - Medium deep ruby. Robust nose of black fruits with licorice. Dry, bright acidity, grainy tannins, palate follows through. Medium body. Good balance. Medium finish. Can rest.

    December 31, 2021 - nez serré de mine de crayon et graphite, noir. montre après aération une énorme concentration et grande amplitude. intègre parfaitement dans son corps la verticalité des arômes: aucun excès ni fausse note. grande classe. jette pour moi une nouvelle lumière sur cette rive que je goutais peu jusque là.

    July 22, 2021 - Blackberry, cassis, gravel, charcoal; rich, full-bodied, powerful, luxurious, very long, and very substantial finish; even the power lingers on and on
    After 2.5 Hours: Similar but slightly more muted on the nose yet with greater presence, intensity, grip and persistence on palate; for what it is, truly excellent

    April 16, 2021 - 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc från St Emilion

    Börjar få aningens, aningens teglad kant.

    I doften de finaste mörka körsbärspralinerna doppade i mörk choklad, grafit, lakrits, mocha, läder, tobak, järn, kryddor. Stor komplex doft. Finns även en klar vanilj/rostat ton som visar att eken inte är helt integrerad ännu.

    I munnen oerhört balanserat trots 15,5% alkohol. Saftig mörkröd frukt. Mycket tanniner men de är förvånansvärt sammetslena, men visst finns det ett strävt grepp fortfarande. Full bodied med krämig, tuggig konsistens. Väldigt lång finish med mörka körsbär. Avslutar lite strävt. Här kan man snacka om ett hedonistiskt, sexigt vin. Stort men samtidigt elegant.

    December 17, 2020 - Really great wine. Decanted for 2 hours, wonderful complexity. Will mature well over the coming 15 years.

    November 29, 2020 - I am still in love with this great wine from this unique wine maker. Yes, you smell, taste and experience the sometimes over-extraction. But all is in place. Not for readers looking for more soft and easy accesible wines. Can carry on for another 5+ years. Easily. Had the 2010 a few weeks ago, whic needs at least 10 more years to blowwom. Not joking

    June 25, 2020 - No notes. Decanted for 3 hours. Intoxicating nose that I could sniff for hours if I also didn’t love to drink but I do so... palate is wonderful stewed plum, tobacco, dark cherry, leather, hint of earth and some savory notes enveloped in silky velvety tannins. This wine has years left but unfortunately my only one. Delicious 93.5

    April 5, 2018 - Dégustation verticale du Tertre Rôteboeuf: Couleur sombre, un nez expressif de fruit noir, avec déjà un peu de truffes (l'arôme qui signe les grands vins du domaine), du chocolat. Un fruit. gourmand, confit mais frais, avec des tanins gommeux, un style exotique très charmeur. Un vin presque huileux, très dense mais il reste étonnamment frais et d’une longueur phénoménale. Très exotique en l'état, il s'assagira sans doute un peu à l'image du 2000. Une des grandes réussites du domaine. Un futur très grand vin. 95 pts ce soir mais sans doute 97+ pts dans l’avenir.

    March 9, 2018 - Dark and extremely roasted; very difficult to tatse when just opened, a bit easier on day 2 and 3, still extremely overdone, extracted, no terroir here at all. A joke, really.
