Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
Dark ruby. Exotic, port-like aromas of blackberry eau de vie, chocolate and shoe polish. Massive, extremely ripe and mouthfilling; shows extraordinary texture and length for the vintage. Like a liqueur. Finishes with major but thoroughly ripe tannins and a mineral firmness that gives the huge fruit shape and grip. An extraordinary achievement for 1997, but then von Neipperg didn't begin harvesting these vines until the very end of September, while some of his neighbors, he notes, began as early as September 5.

Château La Mondotte

Château La Mondotte

Stephan von Neipperg’s La Mondotte is possibly the ultimate 'garagist' wine. 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, produced from a 4.5 hectare vineyard planted with 50+ year old vines. The vineyards are next to Troplong Mondot, a very favourable, fast draining, well exposed site known for early maturation.
