Description

Château Troplong Mondot is one of the most popular chateaux in St Emilion right now. Based on the Right Bank of Bordeaux in France, this is a super wine to have in your collection.

The 2017 Château Troplong Mondot is blended of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. This is a wine that has been favorably scored by the wine critics – with our benchmark critic Neal Martin scoring the wine @ 92 points with the following commentary:

“We had a few old demons hanging around” remarked estate manager Aymeric de Gironde, referencing the new regime at this revitalised property currently undergoing huge investment. The 2017 Troplong Mondot has a nicely detailed though not powerful bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, charcoal and light tertiary aromas, touches of peony developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and fine acidity. This does not possess the complexity or finesse of the top Saint-Émilion wines this vintage and there is a lick of dark chocolate on the finish that feels a little misplaced. Nonetheless, it represents a delicious Troplong Mondot that will give 15 to 18 years of drinking pleasure, though you can bet your bottom dollar this will be surpassed in years to come. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink 2022-2040.”

We are of the opinion that prices for Château Troplong Mondot will continue to rise, so it is a nice wine to have as part of your investment wine portfolio. Worst case scenario – you will be able to enjoy this wine yourself at a special occasion in the new couple of years.
