Francois Mitjavile – Tertre Rôteboeuf 2016

It was my 22nd year visiting Francois, resident owner and magician at Tertre Roteboeuf. As always one of the highlights of our Bordeaux trip each year, with 2016 no exception. His 2016s are simply stunning – sensuous and sensational quality. They possess great depth, roundness and the marvellous ability to drink young but stay the trip for many years, even 2050 for the Tertre Roteboeuf. The Domaine de Cambes is now virtually the equal of Roc De Cambes with Jancis Robinson scoring them both 17, we concur.



All three wines are offered in wood, per 6 bottles. Demand will as always outstrip supply and all are on a strict allocation, please call 02844830091 or email shop@jnwine.com.
