RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the superstars of the vintage, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as abundant notes of blueberry liqueur, graphite, truffles, acacia flowers and subtle toast. Full-bodied, opulent and already easy to drink, this large-scaled wine possesses high levels of tannin, but they are relatively well-concealed by the extravagant fruit, glycerin, texture and density of this compelling Troplong Mondot. This impressive wine may shut down after bottling and require 4-5 years of cellaring. It has the potential to last at least 15-20 years. Bravo!
Barrel Sample:
94-96 Points
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Offers a solid, if slightly chunky, feel, with ganache and charcoal notes coating the core of dark currant preserves, fig paste and warmed plum fruit. Shows lots of smoldering tobacco accents on the finish. Pretty grippy for the vintage, but this is headed in a promising direction. Cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2018 through 2025.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
While initially tough and almost too extracted, this firm, dark wine has intense density and spice from new wood. As it opens on the palate, slowly hints of juicy black-currant fruit and acidity comes through.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points
JS 93
James Suckling
Rich and powerful yet velvety with polished tannins and a long finish. Full and impressive. Remains fresh despite slightly elevated alcohol. 92-93

Chateau Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France
Image of winery
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.
