Histoire et anecdotes

At the end of the seventies, François Mitjavile took control of the estate his wife inherited from her father and named it Tertre Roteboeuf. The estate was already listed in the 1929 edition of the Feret guide (the Bordeaux vineyards “bible”). François Mitjavile came back to old methods by re-establishing the permanent grass cover cropping and by reducing vines’ height. Success was not long in coming: the 1982 vintage tasting placed it at the same level as the greatest with a delicious fruitiness and surprising evolving flavours.

This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru has no classification, certainly because the owner does not want to participate in it, only the reputation is enough.
