Tasting Notes

The Roc de Combes, in similar fashion to the Tertre-Roteboeuf, has a Burgundy inspired bouquet with fine precision. The palate is medium-bodied with mulberry and dark plum fruit intermingling with Chinese tea and a touch of cloves. There is good balanced in this wine, a little sharpness towards the finish, but overall this is another fine Roc de Combes from Francois Mitjavile.

Score: 89/91Neal Martin,, April 2014

The greatest wine of all of the satellite appellations of Bordeaux and often close in quality to the same owner's top Saint Emilion, Le Tertre Roteboeuf. A wine for those "in the know". A right bank wine, yet only 4 or 5 kilometres from Chateau Margaux as the crow flies. This vineyard is a south facing slope with well ventilated vines. Perfect ripeness, that is almost unique in 2013, was achieved here. Picking was late - on October 15th. This wine tastes like Roc de Cambes, not like 2013 Bordeaux. A deep purple colour, with a very smoky, toasty nose of barbecue, vanilla, roasted cherries and plums. The palate has real purity and a smooth, silky texture. Milk chocolate, cedar, plums and black cherry form the core flavour of the wine, which has a long and spicy finish. A triumph of the vintage.
