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

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Inky, bluish/black/purple, with notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this is a powerful, full-bodied Troplong Mondot. All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made by Christine Valette and her husband Xavier Pariente with the consultancy help of Michel Rolland. I-m not sure what the heady alcohol level is in Troplong Mondot in 2010 (it certainly must be in the 15%+ range), but it is well-concealed behind the extravagant, richness, full-bodied power, and pure nobility of this majestic wine. Forget this for 5-7 years and drink it over the following three decades.
