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.

This showed even better than the bottle Francois opened in September. Tasted blind, it has a wily seductive, Merlot-driven nose that is just so pure with scents of violets and blueberries. The palate makes a grand entrance, real depth and immense concentration here, superb acidity, spicy dark cherry, cranberry, raspberry fruit laced with espresso and Asian spice. Seamless tannins on the finish. Iron fist/velvet glove blah…blah…blah…Drink 2012-2035.

This is a fascinating and cerebral wine that wows you with its beauty. This... (WS92-94 points) Beautiful fruit with a Burgundian style. Pure and aromatic.

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.
