2006 Troplong-Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #1044819 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A wine that succeeds in combining great depth of flavor and structure with an impressive array of flavors. On top of the tannins is juicy black fruit, cocoa, a welter of spice and ripeness. The acidity and new wood put the wine into a more modern style. Wait for at least 5-7 years. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2009)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2006 Troplong-Mondot is deep in color with minimal ageing on the rim. The bouquet is rich and generous with mulberry, Hoi Sin, orange blossom and melted tar aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, generous black pepper and graphite notes cutting through the dense black fruit, leading to an engaging, tensile, graphite and tobacco-driven finish that exerts both body and length. It still has that slight stockiness, but that is something I like. I have always found much to admire in this vintage of Troplong-Mondot and it continues to give so much pleasure.

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, deep ruby-red. Brooding aromas of crushed blueberry, bitter chocolate and roast coffee. Rich, broad and sweet, with an almost liqueur-like ripeness of dark berries leavened by brisk acidity and firm minerality. Lots of lift and life here for such a lush, creamy wine. Finishes with big, sweet, building tannins and terrific palate-staining length. This should enjoy a long evolution in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Coffee, cedar, blackberry and tobacco aromas follow through to a tight, powerful palate. This is full yet very reserved, with silky, polished tannins. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 90% Merlot. Very dark and thick. Quite intense nose with some liquorice. Quite tarry but definitely dramatic with some unusually marked sweetness! Definitely distinctive. Rich and seductive even if there is no shortage of dry tannins too. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2012)
