A very powerful concentrated Tertre Roteboeuf but completely closed at present this wine has a deep ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black cherry and plum jam intermixed with hints of vanilla chocolate and espresso roast. The wine is medium to full-bodied quite tannic powerful and one of the more backward wines I have tasted at this estate. It requires much more cellaring than I originally anticipated. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. Last tasted 12/02.

Fabulously expressive superripe aromas of black raspberry black cherry maple syrup toffee and roasted oak with a floral topnote adding complexity. Thick silky and amazingly sweet with outstanding depth of flavor. As opulent and exotic as this wine is it maintains lovely flavor definition. The toffee and smoky oak notes repeat on the palate. Suave tannins are buried in fruit. Wow!

Extremely dense and concentrated and only just coming out of its shell. Prunes but not raisins and lots of luscious dark fruit. Still quite a bit of tannin but no shortage of ripe tannins to counterbalance them. 17.5/20

Lots of plum and hints of cedar and cigar box on the nose. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long rich beautiful finish. A wonderful wine. Delicious.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.
