August 22, 2022 - this is lovely - certainly ready to drink and quite delicious - should be good for a few years and may well improve
April 28, 2022 - Bordeaux Wimps (La Trompette, Chiswick): Opaque garnet core, narrow rim. . Nose is ripe, plum fruit, soil. Quite sweet. Medium/full bodied, soft tannins, ripe plums, nice fresh acids, good length finish. Very good.
March 25, 2022 - From Coravin by the glass list. Ripe nose of prunes, Christmas spices with some cooked fruit elements. Not oxidative but clearly pushed ripeness here. The wine benefits from the combination of ripeness/extraction as searched by the house and the naturally diluted 2007 vintage, so the result is quite all right. Still Tertre Roteboeuf has never been among my favorite Bordeaux due to its heavy hand.
March 3, 2019 - I'm sorry, the tasting note below concerns the '97.
March 3, 2019 - The Winefield's pre-sale tasting (Auction location: Kamerlingh Onnesstraat 22, Amsterdam): Still a deep colour, ripe bouquet, nice acidity, spicy even juicy; the tannins confirm the unripeness of the vintage; no top, but very nice drinking.
November 24, 2018 - Very nice and refine. Still has a long way to go. Will get better. Excellent.
September 6, 2018 - Tasting: 2007? Tertre Rotebeuf?
I guessed a high quality, expensive, Bordeaux.
The best 2007 I have had but not at all like the 2008, which I have hade previously, and which was quite "big". Very balanced, with wonderful, cool, fruit, slightly modern, and really good.
Probably the best Bordeaux from a poor vintage I have had. This is better than some 1:er crus.
November 18, 2017 - It's easy to dismiss most 2007 bdx but this should be an exception to that. 80/20 merlot/cf, ample body, rich, decadent and still firing on all cylinders. Dark cherry, mint, some iron notes as well. Of course it's not a 40 year wine, but a real success for the vintage. Chapeau.
September 2, 2017 - One of the top wines from the Right Bank in most years, and 2007 is no exception. Finesse in style, there is a freshness to the black raspberry tinted fruits, with the added nuances of cherry blossoms, wet earth and hints of thyme. Softly textured, with silky, soft, polished red fruits in the finish, the wine was produced from blending 80% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc.
September 30, 2016 - rather highly toasted wood, very ripe tannins when you consider the vintage, a lot of potential in this and surprisingly good for a 2007
