94-96 Neal Martin – (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Troplong Mondot was tasted from two samples, both directly from the estate, but with two prelèvements because Aymeric de Gironde was not content with the showing of the first. Indeed, the second, which was tasted the following day (yes, bottles arrived quickly) did show slightly better, even if there was not an enormous difference. It has a deep garnet hue, yet the nose is initially backward and demands about an hour to really open and say what it wants to say. The nuanced bouquet features a mixture of red and black fruit, touches of iris flower, sea spray and a touch of Earl Grey. This is typical of the more elegant, terroir-driven style introduced under Aymeric de Gironde. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, cranberry and raspberry mixed with truffle and a pinch of sea salt. The acidity is well judged and it conveys palpable energy on the finish. This is a delicious and characterful Saint-Émilion, fresh and vibrant, that will fill out and gain depth during its barrel maturation. Excellent. Drink 2027 – 2050.
93-95 Antonio Galloni – (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Troplong Mondot is another strong showing from the estate under the direction of Aymeric de Gironde. Exotic and voluptuous, the 2020 is endowed with terrific depth and plenty of layers that unfold over time. Raspberry jam, cloves, kirsch and lavender all flesh out beautifully in the glass. Troplong Mondot has been exceptionally fine since 2017, when the new team headed by de Gironde took over and began to focus on giving the Grand Vin more energy. In the 2020, though, I see less of the vibrancy and brilliance that has defined the new style at Troplong. Tasted two times. Drink 2035 – 2050.
97 Jane Anson – (Mei 2021)
Inky in colour, this is utterly gorgeous, so much purity and definition on the nose. Things start out intense, with crushing tannins, then it steps up and back, with a delicate but juicy slate and crushed rock minerality flooding in. Great physicality, with a push and pull that goes from power to lightness of touch. I assume it will gain a little more weight over ageing, but this is exceptionally well controlled. Crushed blackcurrant and blackberry fruits, with chalky tannins and savoury Cabernet florals. 60% new oak. 3.53pH. The new cellar will be used for vinification from the 2021 vintage, with this vintage aged in the new barrel cellars. No malolactic fermentation in barrel since the 2019 vintage. Just 2mm of rain in July and 30mm in August but the deep clay-limestones at Troplong kept their freshness, and there were no blockages in ripening. Thomas Duclos consultant. Drinking Window 2028 – 2044.
95-97+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown – (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Troplong Mondot is composed of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, harvested from 4th September and lasting for about three weeks. The pH is 3.53, the IPT (tannin index) is 75 and the alcohol is 14.5%. Opaque purple-black colored, it opens with a vivacious burst of black fruits—stewed plums, baked blackberries and boysenberries—giving way to a fragrant undercurrent of licorice, ground cloves, cinnamon stick and lilacs, with a touch of bouquet garni. The full-bodied palate is chock-full of plump, juicy black fruits and savory sparks, framed by fantastically ripe, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and opulent. Drink 2026 – 2052.
98-99 James Suckling – jamessuckling (April 2021)
This has superb depth and intensity with very fine tannins that draw you down. So much black fruit, together with black pepper and salt. Extremely well crafted. Vertical and deep. Chalky and salty with black chocolate.

17+/20 James Lawther MW – (Mei 2021)
85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample. Aromatically a little awkward at present (oak and a bit of oxidation?) but palate clearly defined with crunchy fruit, suave texture and chalky freshness. Impressive structure of finely crafted tannins and a real sense of terroir displayed. Definite potential. Drink 2028 – 2040.

Troplong Mondot

Troplong Mondot kijkt uit over Saint Emilion en is er met zijn 33 hectare één van de grootste Châteaux. De wijngaard is beplant met 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon en 2% Cabernet Franc. In plaats van de gebruikelijke argilo-calcaire bezit het terroir van Troplong Mondot ook silex en kalk. Chemische onkruidverdelgers, meststoffen of insecticides worden er geweerd. In 1989 realiseerde eigenares Christine Valette een kwaliteitssprong naar krachtige, bijzonder intense en gestructureerde wijnen (sommigen noemen dit "blockbusters") en zou sindsdien niet meer omkijken. Vanaf 2006 werd Troplong Mondot dan ook vereerd met de titel van Premier Grand Cru Classé. De invloed van consulent Michel Rolland is hier niet gering.

Alexandre Valette, een wijnhandelaar uit Parijs, kocht het oude wijngoed van Mondot. Het bestond sinds de XVIIIde Eeuw en was genoemd naar de XIXde Eeuwse eigenaar Raymond Troplong. In die tijd werd het aanzien als de tweede beste wijn van Saint Emilion. Nadien zou hij ook nog Pavie verwerven. Zijn achterkleindochter Christine volgde op in 1980 en werd tien jaar later vervoegd door haar echtgenoot Xavier Pariente. Samen zouden zij de wijngaard, kelders en Château verbeteren en mooi maken. In 2014 overleed deze klassedame véél te vroeg.
