Purchased ex Chateau this superbly aged Bordeaux offers great drinking at current release pricing.
Predominately planted to Merlot (90%), Troplong Mondot has 30 hectares of vineyards situated on soil that is rich in limestone clay located in the Saint Emilion appellation. Super star oenologist Michel Rolland was consultant at the time.
Totally opaque dark red black colour with a dark red hue. Glorious aromas of red and black currant along with some ripe mulberry and a whiff of violet sail from the glass. Nuances of cedar, a hint of tobacco, earth, black olive and spice then move in. Medium bodied the palate has a refined elegance to it, blessed with rich red to black currant and mulberry fruit that seamlessly melds into tertiary characters of earthy leather, old cedar, tobacco, dried herbs, traces of black olive and spice. Dryish finish with some gritty tannin still evident, providing structure. All finesse and class it shows great power and concludes with a long savoury finish. A beautiful example of mature Bordeaux that still has plenty of years left in it.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Tasted June 2010. 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. Drink 2014-2034.
