Château Tertre Roteboeuf

  • Bordeaux


Château Tertre Roteboeuf was built in 1730 in Saint-Emilion. However, the vines that are planted there date back to Roman times. At the end of the 1970s, François Mitjavile arrived at Château du Tertre, which his wife Emilie had inherited from her father. He renamed it Tertre Roteboeuf. He is also the owner of the very famous Château Roc de Cambes. The domain is mentioned in the 1929 edition of the Féret guide, also known as the “bible” of Bordeaux’s vineyards. This Gallo-Roman vineyard benefits from a rare microclimate. It is made up of high slopes that face south/south-east. Sustainable viticulture is unique to the domain: the vineyard is kept very small, the harvest is done by hand as late as possible and the wine is made without adding any yeast, the ageing is also very long. By pure will of its owner who doesn’t wish to participate in the classifications, this wine is an unclassified Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. The wines have a tasty, sensual and silky texture with good balance.
