Château Tertre Roteboeuf 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is aromatic, elegant, beautifully gourmand and offers a fine intensity, a small “perfume” side as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of toasted bread, hints of almond, camphor, flowers as well as discreet grilled hints and a very discreet hint of pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, elegant, beautifully gourmande, slightly tight and offers a beautiful definition / finesse, a fine power, a beautiful racy minerality / freshness, a beautiful aromatic precision, a small concentration, a good purity of the fruit, a beautiful juiciness, depthness, an acidulous frame, tension as well as a beautiful, very finely unctuous, very slightly tight and elegant matter. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of juicy / fleshy blackberry and fleshy / juicy raspberry associated with small notes of juicy red berries, coffee, fleshy / juicy black berries as well as small / fine touches of toasted bread, toasted oak and discreet hints of spices. Tannins are elegant and very discreetly firm. Good length. Beautiful and aromatic persistence ! A beautiful wine !
