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 haven't had the pleasure of tasting this wine yet, but here is Parker's review: Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007 Robert Parker (96-100) Drink 2015 - 2040 A blockbuster effort from proprietress Christine Valette (who also deserves congratulations for Troplong Mondot’s ascent to a St.-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe, currently suspended pending litigation), this full-bodied, multi-tiered 2005 continues to confirm its extraordinary dimensions and quality. It is unquestionably the finest vintage for Troplong since 1990. A modern day legend, it exhibits a black/blue color as well as aromas and flavors of graphite, blueberries, black truffles, incense, and camphor. The sensational sweetness and layers of fruit are buttressed by high tannin, good acidity, and unbelievable precision and purity. This profoundly concentrated, full-bodied tour de force in winemaking is Madame Valette’s crowning achievement, and it will be talked about for decades to come. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040. kybecca.com
We haven't had the pleasure of tasting this wine yet, but here is Parker's review: "This estate was justifiably elevated to a Premier Grand Cru Classe in the new St.-Emilion classification thanks to the exceptional efforts of proprietress Christine Valette over the last two decades. The 2005 is one of the monumental wines of the vintage, and may eclipse their prodigious 1990. Inky/blue/purple-colored with an exceptional bouquet of Asian spices, blueberries, blackberries, truffles, cold steel, graphite, and charcoal, it hits the palate with exceptional purity, laser-like precision, a compellingly concentrated, multilayered mouthfeel, a broad, savory texture, terrific acidity, and substantial, but sweet tannins. It lives up to everything it revealed in barrel, and appears set to live for a half century or more. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050." 99 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Issue #176 April 2008 kybecca.com
