WEINWISSER: "Konzentriertes schwarzbeeriges Bouquet, exotische Edelhölzer, dominikanischer Tabak, Alpenheidelbeere, Schokopastillen. Am vielschichtigen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, balancierter Rasse, tiefgründig, beeindruckende Extraktfülle und edler mineralischer Kern. Im kaskadenartigen langen Finale Wildkirsche, Schlehensaft, tiefschürfende Terroirwürze und erhabene Adstringenz. 2030 – 2055."
JEB DUNNUCK: "Coming from an incredible hillside terroir on the eastern side of Saint-Emilion, the 2022 Château Tertre Roteboeuf reveals a dense purple hue to go with a kaleidoscopic array of cassis, blueberries, cherries, acacia flowers, violets, and orange blossom. Always exotic, singular, and overflowing with character, the 2022 looks to be no exception and is full-bodied, with a layered, elegant mouthfeel, beautiful tannins, and a great finish."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „The 2022 Tertre Roteboeuf is made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, harvested on 1 October. Deep garnet-purple in color, it storms out of the glass with powerful notes of preserved plums, blueberry compote, and fruitcake, followed by suggestions of star anise, cedar chest, wilted roses, and unsmoked cigars. The super-concentrated, opulent, full-bodied palate is jam packed with black fruit preserves and exotic spices, maintaining impressive freshness and finishing very long with a mineral lift. This is a very different expression of the vintage - so Tertre Roteboeuf! pH 3.80-3.85."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Black raspberries, flowers, spice, mint, cocoa, licorice, espresso, and plums open the gorgeous perfume. On the palate, the wine is full, rich, deep, concentrated, long and luxurious. The extensive finish leaves you with spicy black raspberries, and plums. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% ABV, 3.8 pH. Harvesting took place October 5 - October 15. Drink from 2026-2050."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "Both the suavest and the most exotic cuvée in the Mitjaville portfolio, the 2022 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a full-bodied, supple and fleshy wine evocative of blackberries, espresso roast, rose petals, spices and smoked meats. Concentrated, refined and seamless, it concludes with a long, aromatic finish. Readers might think of it as a cousin of the 2009 vintage, with its sweetness of fruit but rather ethereal, harmonious profile, which stands in contrast with more overtly powerful years, such as 2020 or 2010."
JANCIS ROBINSON: "True to style. Exuberant nose (fruit, spice, chocolate and menthol notes) and plush texture. Rich but dry on the finish. Suave and seductive with generous fruit and plentiful but very fine tannins."
