WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Sweet cherry, white chocolate, black currant, and crushed rock-like characteristics are present in this medium-bodied St.-Emilion. Excellent richness, spicy tannin, and hints of underbrush and herbs in the finish result in an excellent rather than brilliant Troplong-Mondot that must take a back seat to their other-worldly 2005 and impressively endowed 2006. Give it 2-4 years, and it could have outstanding potential.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
Troplong Mondot dominates the landscape. Located at the highest point of the appellation, its ‘terroir’ benefits from an exceptional 360° exposure and incomparable soil complexity. In this atypical panorama, the vineyard is part of a natural heritage whose biodiversity is a long-standing reality. As the outcome of this perfect balance, the wines reflect the estate’s riches and reveal an identity like no other. Accompanying, with humility, true nature, as a gift that is to be preserved. Working in the wine cellar with finesse and precision so as to transmit the distinctiveness of its unique origins. Composing the blend that expresses the terroir in all its dimensions and nuances. This is what gives our wines their personality, a true reflection of the world of Troplong Mondot. Strong and charismatic personalities punctuate Troplong Mondot’s history. As the owner since 2017, the company SCOR writes a new chapter in the history of the property and fully commits to a vision of the future developing Troplong Mondot. This French leader in reinsurance gives an impulse to a renovation program which will enhance the terroir’s characteristics while being involved in the development of our biodiversity. Today, everyone contributes, with tenacity and generosity, in the pursuit of excellence, whilst drawing on this indefinable sense of happiness at doing it together.
