Description

The 6-hectare vineyard of Tertre Rotebœuf is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vines are located in the southeastern sector of Saint-Émilion.
The terroir is a hillside slope with limestone and clay-based soils in one large block. The hillside elevation offered great, natural drainage.

Tertre Roteboeuf is not only unique in their style of wine, but they are also different when it comes to vineyard management. The vines are trained to be closer to the ground, which helps create their own, microclimate. That makes their microclimate slightly warmer, by about 1 degree Celsius than other neighboring vineyards. This additional factor also aids in the degree of ripeness and maturity for the grapes and the wine.

While they would easily be awarded “Premier Cru Classé” status, they prefer to remain unclassified.

In 2013, Tertre Roteboeuf was only able to produce 30% of their normal production.
