Very expressive redcurrant, tobacco and mint aromas. Smooth and stylish in the mouth, with enticing texture and ripe flavors of red fruits and chocolate complicated by notes of fresh herbs and tobacco. Elegantly styled. Finishes with lush, dusty tannins and very good length.

Wine Advocate | 88

This gorgeously elegant, concentrated wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, and a beautifully knit, blackberry and cherry-scented nose with toasty oak in the background. Not a massive effort, it offers beautifully supple fruit flavors, an attractive fragrance, a ripe, sweet mid-palate, and soft tannin. Drink this seductive, lush Troplong-Mondot over the next decade.

About This Producer


This St. Emilion estate, which dates back to 1745, was once part of the larger domaine that included Chateau Pavie. A century later it was bought by Raymond Troplong, whose name was added to the label. Later, Alexandre Valette, a Parisian vintner, bought the estate in 1980, his great-granddaughter Christine took over the estate. In 2006 the vineyard was selected to Premier Grand Cru Classe status. Thick limestone and dense clay make this vineyard perfect for growing Merlot (which comprises 90% of the vineyards). Wines produced from this estate are powerful and contain complex tannins. The remaining plantings are divided equally between Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1985 the chateau introduced the second label Mondot, which has gained clout as a grand cru in its own right. More recently Christine Valette has produced a rose called Le Clairet de Mondot.
