Notes
Oak dominant, toasted cedar on the opening beats, but it clears and there is charming dark berry fruit behind. Enjoyable texture, structure, architecture, shot through with undergrowth, earth, cigar box, smoke and liquorice. Hard not to be impressed by the power that runs through this, with muscular tannins that benefit from the fresh mint leaf and eucalyptus that comes in to balance things out on the finish. This vintage had the biggest yields for years at Troplong, which almost certainly helped give this some light through the concentration. 100% new oak, Michel Rolland consultant.

Château Troplong Mondot

Château Troplong Mondot

Alexandre Valette, a Parisian vintner, bought the estate crafted by Raymond Troplong. He already owned Château La France in Fronsac and would soon acquire Château Pavie. In 1980 Alexandre’s great grand daughter, Christine, took over the estate and was joined, 10 years later, by her husband, Xavier Pariente. Together they continue to improve and embellish the vineyard, cellar and chateau. This hard work and their efforts proved worthwhile when in 2006 Troplong Mondot was awarded 1er Grand Cru Classé status. Troplong-Mondot overlooks the whole of Saint-Émilion and with its thirty-three (33) hectares, it is one of the biggest estates in the appellation of Saint-Émilion. Generally the soil of Saint-Émilion is clay and limestone based but Troplong Mondot is lucky enough to have special silex and chalk sediments which help to give the wine its lustrous hue and its rich concentration. The vineyard is managed in the traditional manner and neither weed killers, chemical fertilisers nor insecticides are used. These wines are powerful and well-structured with rich complex tannins, which open with time to deep aromas of truffle and blackberry.
