A sensational effort Tertre Roteboeuf's 2005 along with the 2000 is one of the most profound wines made by Francois Mitjavile. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a stunning perfume of sweet black currants jammy cherries licorice and spice. Full-bodied and opulent with high but remarkably sweet velvety tannins as well as a stunning texture and a finish that lasts nearly a minute this prodigious St.-Emilion should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for two decades or more. Kudos to the proprietor.

Wonderfully perfumed fresh aromas of blackberry raspberry licorice spices and violet pastille. Brilliantly pure and energetic with outstanding flavor intensity and inner-mouth perfume. Still an infant today with primary black fruits dominating. But this has the spicy floral perfume of the greatest vintages of this wine. The ripely tannic palate-saturating finish is wonderfully long and vibrant. "Our most beautiful vintage since 1990" notes Mitjavile.

A deep, nearly opaque crimson core, this is still showing lots of intensity of color with ten years of age. The aromatics are a bit reticent and tightly wound, showing baking chocolate, plum, Asian five spice, licorice and black cherries. This is still very youthful on the palate, with loads of dark black fruits and spice underscored by a vibrant line of acidity pushing through the mouth coating flavors and persistent, gripping tannins. Although it’s in a very early stage in its development, this is just starting to turn the corner of approachability and has easily another 15+ years of life ahead.
