Classified as a St-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé B, Château Troplong-Mondot was originally part of a big estate which included Château Pavie.
The wines produced here are impressive, powerful, broad and surprisingly robust for St Emilion.
... the quality of this wine is beyond reproach. Inky bluish purple, its great notes of cassis, blackberry, licorice are followed by a full-bodied, opulently textured wine with stunning concentration, purity and overall balance. It should drink well for 20-25 years and turn out to be one of the great superstars of 2012. Their 63-acre vineyard was cropped at 31 hectoliters per hectare, producing a final blend of 90% Merlot and 10 Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.2% alcohol.- 96 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
