Winemaker Notes

The quality of La Mondotte's clay and the age of the vines (60 years on average) result in a wine that is profoundly marked by its terroir. It is silky, powerful, incomparably elegant, and has enormous minerality.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 97
James Suckling

Extremely complex on the nose with blackberries, chili spice, chocolate and fresh walnuts. Full-bodied, tight and very minerally and racy. Steely tannins. Fresh and vivid. Seamless, soft tannins give this form and beauty. Fresh and powerful. Profound. Drink in 2022.

WS 97
Wine Spectator

Not shy, this pumps lush, dark plum, cassis and fig fruit forward, backed by contrasting waves of grippy tobacco and licorice snap. Dense and muscular until the finish, when a well-buried chalky minerality begins to emerge, adding refinement and cut. A big style, built for the cellar. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2042.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 La Mondotte explodes with beguiling scents of wild blueberries, black raspberries and warm plums plus nuances of lilacs, tilled soil, fallen leaves and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling, crunchy blue and black fruits with a wonderfully plush texture and loads of freshness, finishing long and savory.

JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 La Mondotte checks in as 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc brought up in 60% new French oak. It's beautifully concentrated yet has a bright spine of acidity as well as plenty of tannins that give it a focused, classic style. Blueberries, black cherries, plums, crushed violets, licorice, and graphite notes all emerge from the glass, and this medium to full-bodied beauty has plenty of ripeness, bright underlying acidity, and a great finish. It's the ripest, most powerful in the lineup, yet still shows the elegance and straight style of the vintage.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

Based on firm, dry tannins, this wine has a solid, powerful character. It also has layers of beautifully perfumed fruit that enhance the black-currant flavors. The fine tannins need time to soften, so drink from 2024.

Chateau La Mondotte, France
Chateau La Mondotte Winery Image
La Mondotte is located on the eastern part of the Saint-Emilion plateau next to Troplong-Mondot. This 4.5 hectare vineyard is an absolute gem. Its outstanding terroir (clay limestone soil with very silty clay and a rocky subsoil) has all the natural qualities to produce very great wine. Excellent hydric regulation encourages the vines to sink their roots deep into the soil. The superb sun exposure and fine natural drainage due to the steep slope make this a very early-maturing terroir.

The vines are an average of 50 years old and the vineyard contains only premium grape varieties (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc). Ripening, especially of Merlot, is almost invariably early and complete. The terroir, age of the vines, and infinite attention paid to viticulture and oenology, combine to produce truly great wine at La Mondotte. The terroir also confers unparalleled finesse. This rare wine (maximum annual production of just 11,000 bottles) is always in very great demand.
