Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Troplong Mondot is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. It was emotional tasting this wine, thinking of the late Christine Valette, who made this compelling wine while battling with considerable courage against an insidious disease. It is a great effort and a superstar of the vintage. Dense purple, it offers notes of white chocolate, blackberry, cassis and licorice as well as a hint of truffle and some subtle background oak. Full-bodied, multi-layered, and spectacularly pure and rich, it is a tour de force, and a great tribute to an incredible woman. Remarkably youthful, this wine probably needs another 4-8 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20 or more years. Kudos to the late Christine Valette!

Wine Spectator
Exhibits aromas of coffee, ripe fruit, wild mushroom and blackberry. Dark and very complex. Full-bodied and chewy, yet velvety and beautiful, with intense flavors of blackberry, chocolate and tobacco. Very, very long This is layered and gorgeous.

Chateau Troplong Mondot, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau Troplong Mondot
Domaine de Mondot belonged to Father de Seze, who had the present-day chateau built in 1745. Under his management, the wine of Mondot beame one of the most sought-after in Saine Emilion.

Very much taken by the estate, Raymond Troplong purchased it in 1850 and constituted the vineyard as we know it today. Alexandre Valette, a wine merchant from Paris, acquired the property in the early 20th century. He already owned Chateau La France in Fronsac, and another chateau of the same name in Quinsac, and acquired Chateau Pavie shortly thereafter.
