Ratings and Tasting Notes:
JS=91 This may not be the most concentrated wine from the appellation, but it’s a very appealing introduction to modern-style St.-Emilion. Plenty of mixed berries and a hint of vanilla on the medium-full body. Then the chalky character comes through and adds interest. Second wine of Troplong-Mondot. Drink or hold.
AG=90 The 2016 Mondot is a pretty second wine from Troplong Mondot. Dark, powerful and plush, the 2016 has a lot to offer. There is plenty of richness to the black cherry, leather, smoke and bittersweet chocolate flavours. At the same time, there is no escaping the hard tannins and at times elevated alcohol. In short, Mondot is what makes the superb quality of Troplong Mondot possible. This is a fine second wine, but not more.
WS=90 Dark in profile, with some bacon and toast notes, this is nonetheless accessible in feel, with fleshy plum sauce and warm fig fruit flavours backed by cocoa and tobacco accents on the finish. Drink now through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
