Producer : Château Troplong Mondot
Region : Bordeaux (France), France (France)
Bottle Per Case : 3 x 750 ml
"It boasts an inky/purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of mocha, chocolate, blackberry and cassis fruit, an unctuous texture, a full-bodied, viscous mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like, multilayered finish. This spectacular wine is nearly overwhelming in its richness, thickness and intensity. Once all its baby fat falls away, the terroir characteristics and additional nuances will emerge. This blockbuster, fabulous Troplong Mondot will benefit from 10-15 years of cellaring and keep for three decades or more. It is not shy either, bouncing over the palate with 15.5% natural alcohol."

Château Troplong-Mondot figures among the spearheads of the Saint-Emilion appellation. Established on the highest point of the appellation, it was initially called Château Mondot and belonged to Romain Desèze, defender of King Louis XVI. It was later owned by Raymond Troplong, a lawyer and politician, who acquired it in 1850 and gave it its final name.
The Success Story of Troplong-Mondot is linked to the Valette family, merchants at Bordeaux, who bought it in the 1920s. Starting in the 1980s, Christine Valette-Pariente and her husband Xavier Paliente guided Domaine to excellence, placing it in the pantheon of great wines.
Since 2017, the Domaine has been owned by the SCOR Group with Aymeric de Gironde taking the reins as general manager.
It was during the revision of the Saint-Emilion classification in 2006 that Château Troplong-Mondot was crowned Premier Grand Cru Classé, a position it has held ever since.
The Château Troplong-Mondot has a 33-hectare vineyard that benefits from ideal geological conditions, thanks to clays and flints that enter into the composition of the soils, as well as limestone and silty clays. The grape varieties are 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged for 12 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 75 to 80% of which are new.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
