Rich, deep and explosive, the 2016 possesses remarkable depth and intensity from the very first taste. The 2016 is exotic, full-throttle and unapologetically hedonistic. At times, Tertre-Rôteboeuf can be a bit rough around the edges, but the 2016 is totally sublime. In a world in which so many wines are copycats, Tertre-Rôteboeuf is an original. And the 2016 is a great, emotionally moving Tertre-Rôteboeuf. This is a magnificent effort from François and Nina Mitjavile. Don't miss it! -- Antonio Galloni

Even better, the magical 2016 Le Tertre Rôteboeuf is another heavenly wine from François Mitjavile that flirts with perfection. A normal blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in new oak, its deep purple color is followed by a huge nose of sweet cassis, caramelized blackcurrants, toasted bread, espresso, and smoked herbs. Full-bodied, deep, and powerful, it just dances on the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness, has remarkable purity of fruit, and is perfectly balanced. It should be drinkable in 4-5 years and will cruise in cold cellars for 2-3 decades. Bravo!

(WA96-98 points) The 2016 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare between 14-18 October. This year I was hosted by François' daughter Nina Mitjavile, who has been working alongside her father for several years. It has a wonderful bouquet, very pure and fresh. I anticipated that François Mitjavile might have been tempted to pick a little later like others, but it was an assiduous decision to have the fruit in the vat by the 18 October and lock in that freshness. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, extremely well judged acidity, the new oak present at the moment but in proportion with the fruit. This is a stylish Le Tertre-Rôteboeuf, very sensual and luxuriant with layers of crushed strawberry, blood oranges and raspberry fruit. In a word...irresistible. - Neal Martin

Lusciously textured, fresh black raspberries, wild cherries, wet earth, oyster shell, smoke, licorice and forest scents create a complex set of aromas. Exotic Indian silk, virgin velvet, ruby fruits, anisette and soft tannins make this a hedonistic thrill ride. The wine was produced from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

The 2016 Tertre-Rôteboeuf, which was bottled in August 2018, has a refined bouquet that unfolds in the glass to reveal blackberry, raspberry, hints of wild hedgerow and just a distant whiff of the sea. I love the elegance on display here. The palate is silky-smooth on the entry, offering beguiling, slightly confit red fruit laced with dark chocolate, sage and light mineral notes. You can feel the tongue tingling with residues of white pepper and pain d’épices long after the wine has departed. Just beautiful and très Tertre-Rôteboeuf. -- Neal Martin

18/20 Very rich and heady. Rich and round and lovely. Completely different in structure from all other St-Émilions. Round and voluptuous. Thick and sweet but not heavy. Hugely sensuous.
