TASTING NOTES

"This estate continues to merit substantial praise. Let's hope in the upcoming revised Classification of the Wines of St.-Emilion, Troplong Mondot merits elevation to Premier Grand Cru Classé, which it has deserved for some time. Not far off the pace of the spectacular 2000, the 2001 is performing even better from bottle than it was from cask. A gorgeous perfume of plum jam, crème de cassis, flowers, licorice, black fruits, a hint of graphite, and well-integrated wood notes is followed by a medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion with superb texture, great flavor purity, and tremendous harmony as well as elegance. Remarkably approachable despite its impressive concentration and well-concealed tannin, this is a beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2017." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #153

"This is a dark and rich red with lovely spice, berry and dark chocolate character. Slightly overextracted, but there is a good core of fruit and silky tannins. Give it time in the bottle. I like it as much as the 2000, though it's slightly sleeker in style. Best after 2007. 5,415 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Mid crimson and still youthful-looking at the rim. Very ripe nose, even slightly porty, but on the palate there is enough freshness to keep the wine from being unpleasantly over the top. Some real elegance and lift. Great polish. Not as forced as some later vintages. There's still lots of punch in this wine." JancisRobinson.com
