1999 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #997487 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. Clearer in colour than the Grand Mayne, this has a fresh, well-defined, feminine bouquet and aromas of blackberry, bilberry and a little mint. It has a lightness, a deftness of touch that is endearing. The palate is medium-bodied, very good weight, a slightly lactic/chocolate note on the entry, moderate acidity, nice grip but nice vice-like like the 1989 or 1990. Blackberry, a touch of smoke and raspberry leaf, this Troplong Mondot is evolving impressive finesse. Lovely. (NM)  (7/2009)

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:

Varietal:

Merlot

- 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.
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.
