Château Troplong Mondot

Grand Vin Saint-Émilion 2014

£115.00

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.
