Decanter: Ripe and powerful with an unusual 8% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (90% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc). Dark cherry, blueberry and spice notes. Richly concentrated with sturdy but refined tannins. Freshness of the terroir lends balance. Just a touch of grainy oak which has not yet been fully integrated. 93 Points

Tasting Notes
90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 15.5% Alc. Picked late, between the 30th September and the 21st October. Inky dark with fine purple edge. Smells and tastes of overripeness, but there's enough real sweetness too, so that it is round and easy, and still finishes well with the sweetness rounding out the tannin buildup and making it all succulent. It's a funny one - a bit of a caricature, but somehow pulls it off. The score very much to be taken with the note - it succeeds in its own terms, so magnifique but it's not really claret.
Other Notes
Château Troplong Mondot is a St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé property that has in the last decade been producing wines that are the equal of many 1er Grand Cru Classé estates. Its handsome château dates back to 1745 and Troplong-Mondot was originally part of one sizeable domaine which included the vineyards of Château Pavie. It became autonomous in 1850 when it was acquired by Raymond Troplong. Later on, it was bought by Alexandre Valette and today it is owned and run by his great-granddaughter, Christine and her husband Xavier Pariente.
