    A very dark colour with purple glints. A powerful and very complex, spicy, fruity nose, suggestive of cherries in brandy, blackberries and truffles. The palate offers a great complexity of flavours, revealing rare finesse and outstanding, classy, silky tannins. The finish is amazingly long. A wine of great density and power. An outstanding vintage.
    Parker : 100 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2005 Troplong Mondot is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. It was emotional tasting this wine, thinking of the late Christine Valette, who made this compelling wine while battling with considerable courage against an insidious disease. It is a great effort and a superstar of the vintage. Dense purple, it offers notes of white chocolate, blackberry, cassis and licorice as well as a hint of truffle and some subtle background oak. Full-bodied, multi-layered, and spectacularly pure and rich, it is a tour de force, and a great tribute to an incredible woman. Remarkably youthful, this wine probably needs another 4-8 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20 or more years. Kudos to the late Christine Valette!
