 Medium garnet colour. Earthy nose with notes of blackberries, cloves, black pepper and tobacco.Very firm somewhat astringent tannins slightly dominate the elegantly fruited palate. Medium+ acidity and a long minerally finish. Drink now to 2015. Tasted November 2008.  (1/2009)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium ruby-red. Expressive aromas of musky roasted coffee, leather and smoked meat. Sweet but slightly edgy in the mouth, with dry-edged plum and tar flavors. A wine of modest texture and depth, with some drying tannins.  (6/2002)

Wine Spectator

 Very pretty. Bright berry and mineral aromas in this medium-bodied, refined young wine. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium, spicy finish.  (3/2002)

K&L Notes

Compared to their past releases, Troplong Mondot showed rather soft and elegant with good mouthfeel. Subtle and soft, this wine will be ready much earlier than their '98.

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- 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.
