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!

Deep bright ruby. Wild highly nuanced nose combines black cherry raspberry roast coffee smoked meat exotic spices and pepper notes. Incredibly sweet and rich in the mouth; creamy confectionery fruit caresses the palate... Deep bright ruby. Wild highly nuanced nose combines black cherry raspberry roast coffee smoked meat exotic spices and pepper notes. Incredibly sweet and rich in the mouth; creamy confectionery fruit caresses the palate. Finishes with lush completely ripe tannins and explosive fruit flavors. One of the superstars of the vintage; a wine that will give pleasure early and age well.

Aromas of plums, berries and meat, with hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with loads of sweet fruit and round tannins. Long and juicy. Hard not to drink now.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. ... Aromas of plums, berries and meat, with hints of fresh herbs.

Perfumed, even a little exotic and a hint of sweet brambly smoke like a waft of weed in the air (not uncommon in my part of London). Still has some fresh red fruit on the palate, immensely silky and complex. Some pepper... Perfumed, even a little exotic and a hint of sweet brambly smoke like a waft of weed in the air (not uncommon in my part of London). Still has some fresh red fruit on the palate, immensely silky and complex. Some pepper and sweet decay (in an attractive way). Idiosyncratic Bordeaux but delicious. 17.5/20 (JH)
