Ch. Tertre Roteboeuf (0.75 L)
NM: Deep garnet core with light brick rim. A very rich, alcoholic, slightly pruney, raisiny, tarry nose. The palate is very rich, good acidity, slightly porty but with a citrus undertow. The palate is very tannic, full-bodied and complex. Raisin, touch of tinned prune and orange zest, becoming spicier towards the tarry, chestnut-flavored finish. Very decadent and burly, but lacking the poise of the 1989.
