98 points "- Feb 97 - Two spectacular wines from these vintages, proprietor Francois Mitjavile's 1989 and 1990 are both exotic, opulent, unctuously-textured wines from this splendidly-situated vineyard that in English means, "the hill of the belching beef." Over the last year, the 1990 has exploded in the bottle. Both wines exhibit an opaque garnet/purple color, as well as amazing ripeness and intensity. The 1990 has been so stunning the last several times I tasted it, that it is inching its way up the scoring ladder. In fact, I am close to running out of points. The sweet nose of coffee, jammy berry fruit, smoke, caramel, and spice soars from a glass of this marvelously concentrated, viscous, layered, smooth wine. Whatever tannin this show-stopping, flashy wine possesses (I am sure if analyzed the level is respectable) is buried beneath the jammy fruit and glycerin. The 1990 is so dazzling that I would be a fool to suggest owners refrain from consuming it. By the way, in the blind tasting, I was convinced that the 1990 Le Tertre-Roteboeuf was the 1990 Le Pin - so much for experience." Best 1997-2012
