Château Troplong Mondot is well received by the wine critics, with 95 points from our benchmark critic Neal Martin from vinous.com, who comments:
The 2018 Troplong Mondot takes its time to unfold; this particular sample was afforded 90 minutes to open. It then reveals its exquisitely defined bouquet of black cherries, shucked oyster shells and black currant leaf. It is transparent, almost Burgundian in style. The palate is beautifully defined with fine-boned tannins and wonderful tension and mineralité. You can feel the limestone terroir percolating through this Saint-Émilion, and it retains captivating spiciness on the almost crystalline finish. This is one of the finest Troplongs in recent years, and it has a long and prosperous future ahead. 2023 – 2045
Château Troplong Mondot have produced another super wine that in the long term will be an excellent addition to anyones investment portfolio.
