2007 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #1054367 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Troplong-Mondot has long been a Saint Emilion that has surpassed the vintage. It has a sophisticated bouquet with crushed strawberry, fresh mint and subtle gamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin on the entry, the fruit a little darker and the personality a little broodier than the Canon-la-Gaffelière, gently fanning out on the almost Pomerol-like finish. Probably à point, but it will give another decade's worth of pleasure. (NM)  (6/2017)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep red-ruby. Expressive aromas of musky black cherry, cassis and bitter chocolate. Plush, pliant, round and sweet, with smoky blueberry, mineral and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by tar and licorice. Finishes long, with very suave tannins. This seems almost drinkable now but has the concentration and structure to reward aging. (ST)  (7/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Shows blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with hints of wet earth. Medium- to full-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and lots of new wood. Really polished. (JS)  (3/2010)

K&L Notes

Serious wine—superb, with great structure and long, lingering palate. Fabulous. At UGC this was lovely and sweet on the palate. Sexy wine, ripe, and forward. Great mouthfeel! Ralph Sands: Ripe and strong. Very long on palate. This has it all.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
