Wine Advocate

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Picked on 22nd September, the Tertre-Roteboeuf has a very pure, lifted bouquet with great precision and minerality. It is not powerful, but it has great refinement and finesse. The palate is introverted, remaining its shell, but it has crisp, almost chalky tannins and very pure, pixelated dark berry fruit with hints of spice on the linear finish. It is not expressive at the moment, but it has great potential. Tasted April 2012." 5/12


96 Points, Tim Atkin MW, "The engaging François Mitjavile has excelled himself, making a silky, alluring wine of great distinction. Deeply coloured, complex and fine, this Merlot-based red shows polish, structure and finesse, with notes of sweet black fruits, liquorice and subtle vanilla oak, dense tannins and a long, fine finish with plenty of grip and concentration. The famous amphitheatre of vines has delivered in 2011. 15+ years." 05/12 93-95 Points, Jeff Zacharia. Zachys Buying Team: "Great length and concentration, round, balanced and elegant. Amazing density, structure and fruit. Incredibly soulful, you can tell Francois has poured everything he has into the wine. A top wine from the vintage."

International Wine Cellars

92-93 Points, International Wine Cellars: "Deep ruby-red. Intense aromas of red cherry, coffee and mocha. Spicy and sweet, with ripe red fruit, cassis and mocha flavors that come across as tighter and less immediately sexy than in most vintages. Finishes smooth and long, with very good clarity and cut. This will need plenty of time to develop more creamy flesh, but it's yet another outstanding Le Tertre Roeteboeuf in the making. For the first time in years, owner François Mitjaville showed this wine before his Cote de Bourg property Roc de Cambes, which, though less complex, is just as voluptuous a wine in 2011 as its much more famous stablemate..." 05/12
