Notes
A blend of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Troplong Mondot is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs a swirl or two to release a profound nose of plum preserves, juicy blueberries, and chocolate-covered cherries, giving way to hints of violets, black truffles, fertile loam, and tar, with a waft of licorice. The full-bodied palate shimmers with energy, delivering tightly wound layers of black fruits, floral notes and mineral layers, framed by very fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and minerally. So very fresh and bright - it needs time, but is already a temptress.

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.
