External Reviews for Château Troplong Mondot Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru
Beautiful plum, berry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with refined tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very nicely done. Best after 2009.
With extraordinary purity and intensity, the 2002 Troplong boasts a saturated purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of underbrush, cassis, licorice, smoke, and a hint of crushed stones. The beautifu... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Troplong-Mondot 750ml
Having exploded in quality, the 2003 is now much more massive, concentrated, and powerful than it was a year ago. Now one of the top right bank wines of the vintage, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a bold, dramatic fragrance of melted chocolate, expresso roast, smoke, plums, blackberries, and black currants. Full-bodied and rich, with low acidity, high tannin, loads of glycerin, and massive, multilayered flavors, this brilliant effort (tasted on three separate occasions) reminded me of the prodigious 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2022.
This superb estate, run with impeccable attention to detail by Christine Valette, has produced a formidable, backward wine that will require considerable cellaring. When St.-Emilionrsquo;s new classification is announced in several months, it will be a crime if Troplong is not promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe status. Even by Bordeaux standards this is a weighty vin du garde, with huge density, a backward, masculine style, an inky dark ruby/purple hue, and subtle notions of white chocolate, expresso roast, plums, blackberries, and currants. Full-bodied, powerful, and ldquo;closed for businessrdquo; at present, it exhibits beautiful purity, stunning depth, and a long, persistent finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2025+.
