Château Troplong Mondot Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"An amazing wine, the 2010 is right up there with the extraordinary quality of 2009, 2005 and 1990. ... This stunningly rich effort offers abundant blueberry, black raspberry, licorice and graphite notes intermixed with a hint of espresso roast, a seriously concentrated, super-intense mouthfeel, full-bodied power, a complex, multidimensional texture and a nearly 50-second finish. It will require 5-6 years of bottle age after its release and should keep for three decades or more. Just prodigious!...96-98+" WA 05/11

83% merlot 14% cabernet sauvignon 3% cabernet franc in clay and limestone soils. Average vine age is 25 years. Organically farmed with yields of 32 hls/ha. 100% new oak. 15.5% alcohol. Dark inky glass staining purple with a black core opaque and dark magenta to the rim. Beautiful perfume of crushed flower blossoms with brambly spiced blackberry and cassis fruit that has evolved and is complex showing black tea and some minerals. Powerful attack of densly packed black fruits are rich and weighty on the palate. A modern wine that still retains some terroir expression of fresh earth amongst all that plush blackberry and boysenberry fruit. The wine pulls across the pallet with excellent purity and depth. A star of the Right Bank. Andy Frieden.

Troplong Mondot has been slowly increasing the amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyards. 2010 is the first year featuring a substantial portion (14%) in the blend along with 83% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Previous recent vintages have included about 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Currently the vineyard is planted to 16% Cabernet Sauvignon with the goal set to about 20%. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in clay soil as it does not grow well in limestone. Yields were low in this vintage at 32 hectoliters per hectare the same as in 2009. The wine reached 15.5% alcohol. For people that like to compare 2009 came in at 15.4% alcohol. The pH is 3.6 is for the Merlot and 3.75 in Cabernet Sauvignon. Those low levels of pH allow the wine to feel fresh and offer lift. 2010 expresses more lift than 2009. . Midnight black in color with a perfume filled with minerality licorice blueberry blackberry jam and clay this dense chocolate covered sweet boysenberry filled wine packs a lot of
