Château Tertre Roteboeuf 1997 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, gourmand and elegant. It’s surprising how the nose is young. It reveals notes of small cooked fruit, dried fruit and blueberry associated with fine notes of truffle, chocolate, blackberry as well as a grilled hint, undergrowth and a discreet hint of tobacco. The mouth is nicely fruity, gourmand, dynamic, fleshy and offers smoothness, a nice fat, suavity, an acid frame and freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and slight notes of strawberry jam, blueberry, black cherry associated with a touch of truffle, small dried red fruit, toasted oak, ash, coffee as well as a slight note of dark chocolate. Tannins are fine, supple and currently slightly firm. Good length and good persistence. A beautiful, fresh, fleshy and beautifully (still) young wine!
