The 2015 Le Tertre Roteboeuf was picked between 8 and 12 October, François Mitjavile alternating his pickers between here and Roc de Cambes. Like his other 2015s, there is a nascent Burgundy-like allure on the nose that is beguiling in purity and beautifully defined, with scents of small dark cherries, Indian ink and a touch of cassis, an undertow of minerals that will surely become more perceptible as the wine ages in bottle. The palate is harmonious and animated. You are immediately taken by the fineness of the tannin and its velvety smooth texture. It just glides effortlessly along, extremely persistent and tensile on the finish. This will be irresistible once in bottle, and yet there is the substance to see it age for many years. Yes - it's just a little bit magical. 97-99 WA
