2008 Tertre Rotebouef, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)
94-96 points Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a very well defined nose: maraschino, wild strawberry, a “gourmand” bouquet, something slightly digestive about it. Very pure though. The palate is medium- to full bodied, good acidity, nice weight, bright red fruits but there is something far more deeper within: hoi sin, a irony character that especially comes through on the finish. Good length, very good nervosité on the finish. Excellent. Tasted April 2009."-WA Online Neal Martin's Wine Journal Apr 6, 2009. According to Decanter: "Trademark opulence and maturity of fruit. Ripe, confit expression on the nose. Palate zesty and gourmand. Tannins rounded and pure. Drink 2015."
