Winemaker's Notes

La Mondotte has the ability ability to age. A wine with extremely concentrated structure and a long finish.

Varietal Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"Stephan von Neipperg's tiny jewel of a vineyard 12 acres produces the ultimate garage wine from 50-year old vines. A candidate for the wine of the vintage, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is a big, concentrated effort of extraordinary intensity and richness. A sensational bouquet of sweet blueberry, black raspberry, and black currant fruit interwoven with scents of charcoal, incense, graphite, and pain grille is followed by an extraordinarily intense, full-bodied, amazingly concentrated wine displaying elevated tannins in the finish. It is another uncompromising effort meant for long-term cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030. "
97 Points

"This shows mineral, floral and violet aromas. Full-bodied, with firm yet polished tannins and a cedar, vanilla bean and berry aftertaste. Solid and beautiful. Best from 2013 through 2018."
