2004 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #1073497 92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark At the Union des Grands Crus tasting in 2005, this was elegant red ambrosia; it showed beautifully sweet and ripe at our recent tasting in New York. A gracious pillow of Merlot with mineral tannins to make it mouthwatering and lengthen the finish, this only gets better with air. Oak adds to the elegance of the wine and it seems destined to drink well over the course of the next ten years or more. The château was upgraded to Premier Grand Cru Classé status in 2006. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of blackberry, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with fine tannins, good length and a delicate, fruity aftertaste. Much more refined than I remember from barrel. Caressing. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2007)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Sweet cherry, white chocolate, black currant, and crushed rock-like characteristics are present in this medium-bodied St.-Emilion. Excellent richness, spicy tannin, and hints of underbrush and herbs in the finish result in an excellent rather than brilliant Troplong-Mondot that must take a back seat to their other-worldly 2005 and impressively endowed 2006. Give it 2-4 years, and it could have outstanding potential. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The ’04 Troplong has a pure bouquet with blackberry, creme de cassis, clove and a touch of liquorices with fine definition. The palate displays dense, slightly oppressive tannins: very forthright and demanding, perhaps banging on the table too hard demanding attention. Still, there is an attractive animally quality coming through on the finish and it has good length. Fine. Tasted November 2010." (07/2011)
