wooden case of 1 magnum 150cl: 173,33 €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.

Radical break in style from the 2017 vintage, with less dense but oh so precise, elegant and racy wines, confirmed in 2018 by Mr. Galloni (vinous) "The 2018 is regal, refined and absolutely exquisite", rated 97/100.

2018 vintage rated 94/100 in La 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)
