Chateau Troplong Mondot 2006

 A case of 12 Bottles (750ML)
Magnificent, deep ruby colour. An harmonious nose of red berry fruit with hints of toast followed by fruit kernels, almonds and finally menthol and liquorice that is characteristic of the terroir. On the palate, there is red berry fruit (cherries and kirsch) and a pleasant freshness. A long, full, classic vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2006 Troplong-Mondot is deep in color with minimal ageing on the rim. The bouquet is rich and generous with mulberry, Hoi Sin, orange blossom and melted tar aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, generous black pepper and graphite notes cutting through the dense black fruit, leading to an engaging, tensile, graphite and tobacco-driven finish that exerts both body and length. It still has that slight stockiness, but that is something I like. I have always found much to admire in this vintage of Troplong-Mondot and it continues to give so much pleasure. Tasted December 2016.
