Description

One of my favourite wines in the whole world. Troplong-Mondot has only really been on the radar in recent times. Infamously the vineyards of this estate used to encompass the land that is now the ultra famous Pavie. 33 hectare on the limestone plateau in the most celebrated part of the appellation. The vineyard blend is 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wines here are beautifully aromatic and lush with refreshing acidity underneath. A pretty example of St-Emilion.

Bright, mineral, hint of herbs, olives and floral. In the mouth it offers mid weight, floral, smoke and charry notes. Fine boned, elegant and delicately poised. There is a hint of refreshing bitterness and lovely fruit tannins.

Saint-Emilion

With approximately 5400 hectare planted it is a vast appellation with a few distinct personalities. Like the famous neighbour Pomerol the wines are Merlot dominant and offer the silk, perfume and charm that Merlot can give. The best of the wines will live as long as, if not longer than most Left Bank wines and often cost two or three times more.

Merlot

Not a lot of love for this hard working grape. But in Pomerol and Saint-Emilion Merlot not only dominates but makes some of the best wines in the world. Perfume, silky and plush. Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon season the wines with structure and acid but in some places, like Petrus they are almost not needed.

2015

Great Bordeaux is still very much dependant on the vintage. The weather conditions in Bordeaux for the most part were agreeable albiet everything happened quite early. All the quality factors were there and the wines at the en-primeur tastings brought on a lot of excitement with some people comparing it to the 1998, 2005, 2009 and 2010 vintages for quality. The fairest comparisons seem to be 1985 and 2001 both of which have proved to be enjoyable vintages with good longevity. Prices are fair by Bordeaux standards.
