A high-class, concentrated and voluptuous Saint-Emilion

Chateau Troplong Mondot 2011 offers one of the finest examples of a wine with great finesse and concentration on the Right Bank in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation in the Bordeaux region. It rests on a superb clay-limestone terroir overlooking the Saint-Emilion plateau on the Mondot hilltop facing the Cote Pavie

Chateau Troplong Mondot, a Premier Grand Cru Classee B, produces the Chateau Troplong Mondot 2011, which is made from a blend of 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc.

A great wine from the estate, the Chateau Troplong Mondot 2011 comes from a vintage noted for particular climatic conditions that required a great technical mastery. Harvesting started in mid-September for the younger Merlot plots and at the end of September for the older Merlot vines. The harvest finished at the end of October for the Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon berries.

The Chateau Troplong Mondot 2011 is a classic grand vintage with its own unique style. Its color has a great density and is almost black with purple reflections on the rim. On the nose, it presents a superb aromatic concentration with ripe black fruit notes that evolve into intense aniseed and licorice notes. On the palate, the frank attack reveals a voluptuous mouthfeel with ample notes of spice, cocoa and mocha. This powerful wine has a dense structure with present, yet silky, tannins that is highlighted with great finesse. The long finish ends on a lovely acidity. This is a classy wine with great aging potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The brilliant 2011 Troplong Mondot is one of the superstars of the vintage. The final blend was 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, and the wine tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Its opaque blue/purple, nearly black color is followed by aromas of blueberry liqueur interwoven with black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, camphor and forest floor. Among the most complete wines of the vintage, with no hollowness, astringency or herbaceousness, this is a tour de force in a challenging vintage. Some tannins are noticeable, but this 2011 is already approachable and should provide delicious, complex drinking over the next two decades. Bravo!
