  • Goedhuis, May 2005, Score: -

    A powerhouse St Emilion with a huge density of black fruit, very powerful tannins and plenty of sweet oak. Although it was quite mute when we tasted it, with time it will, doubtless, develop into a showy, appealing bottle of wine. Drink 2012-2025

  • Robert Parker, June 2007, Score: 89

    Sweet cherry, white chocolate, black currant, and crushed rock-like characteristics are present in this medium-bodied St.-Emilion. Excellent richness, spicy tannin, and hints of underbrush and herbs in the finish result in an excellent rather than brilliant Troplong-Mondot that must take a back seat to their other-worldly 2005 and impressively endowed 2006. Give it 2-4 years, and it could have outstanding potential. Drink 2011-2025

  • Robert Parker, June 2006, Score: 92-94

    Another terrific effort from charming proprietress Christine Valette, the dense blue/purple-hued 2004 Troplong Mondot displays a striking nose of acacia flowers intermixed with crushed rocks, black currants, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries. This layered, structured, backward, but enormously well-endowed 2004 is a marvelous demonstration of how to produce an elegant as well as substantially flavored wine. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep until 2020. Drink 2006-2025 While it has closed down since last year, the impressively endowed 2004 Troplong Mondot displays a saturated blue/purple color along with hints of smoke, chocolate, espresso roast, plums, and black cherries. This extracted, powerful, tannic effort will need 5-6 years of bottle age, and should last until 2025. Drink 2011-2025

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2005, Score: 17

    Very deep crimson. Low key nose more fruit and veg than mineral or meat. Round and silky textured. Well made. Very sophisticated with a light touch. Gentle and well balanced. All in place and unusually persistent. Drink 2012-2020

Producer

Château Troplong Mondot

Located on a limestone plateau overlooking Pavie, Troplong Mondot has become one of the most sought after châteaux in all of Bordeaux. It has consistently been making quality wines for years. It is this dedication that has set it apart from some of its flashier peers.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
