When he originally scored 2010 ChateauTroplong-Mondot in 2011, he called it "an amazing wine" and gave it a score of 96-98+. After re-tasting it at the beginning of the year, he had even more praises to sing and called the wine "absolutely stunning." Troplong-Mondot 2010 is "powerful, fullbodied" and shows "notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit." This wine should be consumed ideally between 2018-2048
Parker : 98 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Troplong Mondot explodes with beautiful floral notes of red roses and candied violets over a core of plum preserves, kirsch and blueberry pie with a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has bags of plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and sinfully hedonic.
