Earlier this year I received a message from Sebastian Payne saying that he’d just tasted some “wonderful, exceptional and original wines” from Château Tertre Rôteboeuf and Roc de Cambes. Volumes are too small for the Wine Society, but Sebastian wondered if I was interested in giving the Dining Club members a chance to try such wines.
I have grasped the nettle, and I hope that these wines will please you. Given the expense and rarity of these wines, we have Mr Mark Savage to help us appreciate them.
Both properties are owned by M François Mitjavile, who is ‘unquestionably the finest producer in the Côtes de Bourg appellation’ where Roc de Cambes is produced. The vines are some forty years old, mostly merlot with some cabernet sauvignon plus cabernet franc.
Château Tertre-Rôteboeuf is a Grand Cru wine from St Emilion, commanding high prices (2010 will set you back some £150 per bottle) from an estate of just 5.7 hectares. Tasting notes for ‘Tertre’ typically use such words as blackcurrants, cherries, vanilla, aromatic etc as M Mitjavile usually harvests late in the season, producing wines which are ‘a hedonist’s delight!’
Roc de Cambes: 2008, 2003, 2000, 1998 and 1995
Château Tertre Rôteboeuf: 2008, 2002, 1999, 1993 and 1985
There is a chance of a light supper afterwards, from the Carlton Club’s kitchen.
