Chateau la Mondotte St. Emilion Premier 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Excellent hydric regulation encourages the vines to sink their roots deep into the soil. The superb sun exposure and fine natural drainage due to the steep slope make this a very early-maturing terroir. The vines are an average of 50 years old and the vineyard contains only premium grape varieties (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc). Ripening, especially of Merlot, is almost invariably early and complete. The terroir, age of the vines, and infinite attention paid to viticulture and oenology, combine to produce truly great wine at La Mondotte. La Mondotte is deeply-coloured, well-structured, and extraordinarily opulent. The terroir also confers unparalleled finesse. This rare wine (maximum annual production of just 11,000 bottles) is always in very great demand. « La Mondotte" is powerful and has remarkable ageing potential. It is an extremely concentrated, well-structured wine with a long aftertaste, very deep colour, and superb balance. It is profoundly marked by its soil

...Fresh, bright red-ruby color. Roasted plum, currant, game, leather and sexy oak spices on the nose. Thick and broad on entry, then fat and rich in the middle, with a nicely restrained sweetness. Wonderfully layered, deep wine, showing more power t... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Mondotte, La 750ml
