Grand Vin Saint-Émilion 2014
96 points, “The 2014 Troplong Mondot is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage, and this beauty has more intensity, richness, and exuberance than just about every other wine in 2014. A blend of 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc brought up in 85% new French oak, it sports a deep purple/plum colour as well as a smorgasbord of blackcurrants, blackberries, scorched earth, toasty oak, graphite, espresso, and earth. With full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit, and a rich, yet weightless texture, it’s a big, yet classy, elegant, and seamless wine from Xavier Pariente that should be snatched up by readers. It’s already drinking well but has 20-25 years of prime drinking to go.
95 points, “The dark, savoury, earthy and plum aromas plus the serious tannins here give this wine a lot of character.” – James Suckling
94 points, “This is a delicious Troplong Mondot that should age with style and grace.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
With a reputation for being a bit of a firecracker, Château Troplong Mondot sits on top of a hill overlooking its neighbours on the Right Bank. Powerful and decadent as ever, its richness carries its high alcohol in such a balanced manner you’d never notice. If you’re looking for a wine to knock your socks off, this is it.
Blackberry jam, espresso, pencil shavings, Chambord, blueberry muffins, black cherry and smoke. A wonderful wine with the power of a locomotive. This wine will pair best with a massively concentrated dish, something slow cooked, but we’d still recommend decanting several hours ahead.
