Château Troplong-Mondot 2013 (RP:92-94) / 2017 (RP:95)

FRR00573A

Vintage

Chateau Troplong Mondot 在Saint Emilion區擁有33公頃土地,是該區的大型酒莊之一(其他同區酒莊只有約10公頃)。位於Saint Emilion的山丘頂,週圍的環境特別突出,微微向西南的斜坡,眺望Saint Emilion區的各個村莊,而正南方的山丘則伸延至Chateau Pavie。

葡萄園依從傳統,種植該區最優質的品種。Merlot是Saint Emilion區的當然之選,為葡萄酒提供結構(即酒體和靈活度),Cabernet Franc則提供精緻度和優雅度,Cabernet Sauvignon則給予性格和陳年潛力。

Chateau Troplong Mondot with its 33 ha is considered to be a large estate as the majority of properties in this area are usually no bigger than 10 ha.

It sits on the top of a hill (106 meters) and dominates the surrounding countryside; the gentle south west slope overlooking the village of Saint-Émilion and the sharp south facing hill which extends to Chateau Pavie.

The vineyard is planted traditionally with the best varietals of this area of Bordeaux. Merlot is the royal varietal of this region and the most widely planted which gives the powerful structure to our wines, in other words, its body and flexibility, whereas Cabernet Franc gives it delicacy and elegance and Cabernet Sauvignon its personality and long life.

Matured in oak barrels of which 75% are new oak and 25% are one-vintage old, for 12 to 24 months depending on the vintage. Blending at maturity produces Troplong Mondot and Mondot. Natural egg whites are used for fining, if required.

Tasting Notes: 
Vintage 2013(RP:92-94)
Full-bodied and atypically rich and concentrated for a 2013, it boasts beautiful blueberry and crème de cassis fruit as well as underlying chalky minerality, and good richness and concentration.
Vintage 2017(RP:95)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Troplong Mondot is a little closed to begin, soon unfurling to reveal expanding notions of warm blackberries, wild blueberries and liquorice plus hints of smoked meats, black olives, pencil shavings and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed mouth-coating black fruits, exploding into loads of earthy sparks with a soft, velvety texture from ripe, rounded tannins. It finishes with spectacular freshness and loads of layers.
