Chateau Troplong-Mondot En Primeur France Bordeaux Premier Grand Cru Classe Merlot. Cabernet Franc 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has been awarded a fantastic 98 points by Robert Parker. He writes: “A fabulous example, the 1990 Troplong Mondot is only equaled by such recent vintages as 2000, 2005, and 2008. The inky/garnet/plum/purple-colored 1990 exhibits notes of coffee, blackberries, licorice, camphor, and espresso. Rich and full-bodied with lavish fruit, high glycerin, low acidity, and stunning purity, it is still several years away from full maturity, and should last for another 10-15 years.”

Troplong-Mondot, Château:
Château Troplong Mondot is grown on extensive vineyards rich in limestone clay soils. Powerful, well-structured with pronounced complex tannins, its deep aromas of truffles and blackberries develop over time.

We changed speeds with the Bordeaux flight and this offered a good introduction with it's roasted beef notes on the nose that were joined by espresso crema, butter toffee, roasted green herb and sweet spearmint notes that complicated the dark, jammy fruit. With time a bit of leather, limestone and cigar join the fruit. This offers great integration in the mouth with bright acidity though the tannins remain slightly drying. Good mineraly grab in the mouth followed by lots of cedary tinged fruit that leans toward the more delicate, mulberry end of the spectrum with a gentle leafiness. This could still use 5-7 years in the cellar.

A blockbuster. Amazing. I love Port, and this is close. Dark color. Very, very ripe on the nose. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of fruit and concentration in tannins. Mouthpuckering.
