Tertre Roteboeuf 2016
Tertre-Roteboeuf represents the architecture of a winegrowing estate in the purest 18th century style. 35 km east of Bordeaux, the 5.7 hectares of vines are planted in a clay-limestone soil typical of the southern coast of Saint-Emilion. It is on this same terroir of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes that François Mitjavile, a winemaker with a passion for history and agronomy, revealed Tertre-Roteboeuf.
François and his daughter, since their installation in Tertre-Roteboeuf, have a vision of wine that is their own. The one they like and that their clay-limestone soil allows them to make. Their wines are signed like a Picasso canvas.
A recognizable style: identical precision in quality, the same tannic structure, opulent wines, wines that flirt with the grand crus without being on the Bordeaux classification list.
If we start from the principle that a great wine is good young as well as old, then all the production of the domain ticks this box.
François Mitjavile and his daughter Nina (who also manages Roc de Cambes, in Côtes de Bourg) do not belong to any particular group.
