Château TROPLONG-MONDOT 1er grand cru classé 2018 wooden case of 1 magnum 150cl

wooden case of 1 magnum 150cl: 175,00 €wooden case of 1 magnum 150cl

Bought out in 2017 by the reinsurer SCOR, a page is turned in Troplong-Mondot, a formidable terroir in Saint-Emilion. Up to and including 2016, these are the richest in extract and most generous wines of the appellation, made by Christine Valette and her husband, under the aegis of Michel Rolland.

A radical break in style from the 2017 vintage: armed with the power of its terroir, the Château now aims, under the leadership of Aymeric de Gironde (former director of Cos d'Estournel), to produce more harmonious wines, combining elegant precision with their natural aromatic richness.

Rated 94/100 by the Revue du Vin de France « On sent ici la volonté d'une extraction moins poussée. Tant mieux, l'équilibre de ce vin puissant se montre plus aérien. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 98+/100 by Antonio Galloni after bottling « All of the power that is typical of this site is evident, it seems to come so naturally, and yet picking earlier and then using a lighter hand in the cellar yielded a Troplong of uncommon energy and vibrancy. The 2017 has been nothing short of thrilling on the four occasions I have tasted it from bottle so far. What a wine! » (March 2020)
    Second best score of the 2017 vintage, only edged out by Ch. Lafleur!

    Rated 95/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « Moelleux et de suite fondant dès l’entrée en bouche, le vin gagne un corps très aérien au milieu. A partir de là, la stimulation monte, monte, avec beaucoup de goût, une grande classe aromatique, avant de s’achever profond tout en délicatesse et véritablement incrachable. Ne pas le manquer. » (Oct. 2020)
