    Product description

    This tiny estate produces wine from some of the lowest yields in Saint Emilion. Each plot is vinified separately and barrels are carefully selected to complement the wine’s intrinsic fruitiness. The wine is aged for 18 months in 100% new oak barrels and is known to be ripe and unctuous. Only a very small amount is produced each year.

    “It is a candidate for the wine of 1997. From its saturated opaque black/purple color, to its extraordinarily intense jammy blackberry/cassis liqueur-scented nose, this is a fabulous claret. Expansive and full-bodied, with exhilarating levels of extract, an opulent, unctuously-textured feel, extremely low acidity, and a 40+ second finish, this is a prodigious effort. While not quite as well-defined as the 1996, and perhaps slightly less concentrated, this medium to full-bodied, showy, unbelievably dense and rich wine is another tour de force in winemaking.”93/95pts, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 1998

    French still red wine from Saint Emilion Bordeaux France, made with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

    About the producer: Contes de Neipperg

    Located in Saint Emilion, between Troplong-Mondot and Tertre-Rôteboeuf, La Mondotte dates from the 19th century. This tiny 4.5 ha estate belongs to Count Stefan Von Neipperg who also owns Canon-La-Gaffelière. In the 1990s, he installed fermentation vats at the property in order to show what its terroir could achieve. Sourced from some of the lowest yields in Saint Emilion, each plot is vinified separately and barrels are carefully selected to complement the wine’s intrinsic fruitiness. The wine is aged for 18 months in 100% new oak barrels and is known to be ripe and unctuous. La Mondotte has been certified organic since 2014. View our selection.
