International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($99-$110) Good saturated ruby-red. Expressive, thoroughly ripe aromas of blackberry, violet and game. Sweet on entry, then lush and densely packed in the middle, with terrific depth of flavor and backbone. Very ripe yet cool flavors of blackberry, espresso and licorice. A powerfully constituted wine that will need a good decade of bottle aging. But, in contrast to the 2001 and 2002 vintages, here the strong tannins are beautifully distributed and fine. A great success for this chateau.

Deep crimson. Very dense. Spicy nose. More dangerous and less concentrated than the Pavie-Macquin. Exotic treacle. Looks relatively youthful. Exotically ripe nose. Voluptuous and only just sufficiently reined-in. Chewy, sandy tannins. Quite painful at the moment. Lots of tannins and acidity. Refreshing without very dry tannins at the finish. Slightly medicinal.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 189

Extremely young with an unbelievable deep purple color, the 2000 Troplong Mondot has hardly budged since I tasted it in 2003. Two recent tastings confirmed that this is the greatest Troplong Mondot between their profound 1990 and more recent vintages such as 2005, 2008, and 2009. Copious chocolate, graphite, blackberry, blueberry, cassis, and ink characteristics are present in this full-bodied, powerful, massive St.-Emilion. While the tannins are noticeable, they are better integrated than they were seven years ago, and the fruit, extract, and richness clearly outweigh the wine's structure. This 2000 will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring (longer than I originally predicted), and has at least two decades of drinkability ahead of it.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Lovely berry, cherry and spice, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a pretty mineral and berry aftertaste. A sexy and refined red. 7,080 cases made.

80% Merlot and 10% each of the Cabernets, this wine shows great dark color with an intense nose of black cherry and sweet spicy oak. The wine shows plenty of oak and tannin overlaid with anise and more black cherry nuances. An enjoyable wine but not nearly as good as the stellar 1990. The wine needs considerable time ? drink 2015 to 2025.
