TASTING NOTES

"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. It is a noteworthy homage to Christine Vallete's brilliant efforts at Troplong Mondot, which resulted in the elevation of this estate in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification. It can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. It has been less than six months since the irrepressible and brilliant Christine Vallette passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. I must confess that tasting at Troplong Mondot was a powerful emotional experience. However, the 2013 is clearly one of the stars of the vintage." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #214

"The 2013 Troplong-Mondot is gorgeous. Round, supple and resonant, the 2013 graces the palate with mocha, plums, spices and new leather. All the Troplong signatures are in place, but in miniature. The finish is long, supple and creamy. As always, Troplong-Mondot is a wine of great personality and character, even in 2013." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Lots of sweet spice scent - clearly expensive oak. Dry, savoury palate with a fine-grained tannic texture. Persistent length. Rich without being overwrought. The fruit stands up to the oak and the structure too. Nicely done." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
