1996 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #110407 90-92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark First tasted in April 1998: very dark ruby colour. Nose sweet and feminine and quite attractive. Beautifully balanced with classy, sweet liquorish fruits. Harmonious. Superb wine for long-term aging. Retasted in Bordeaux in July 2003: a very fragrant nose, loaded with spice, glycerin and raspberry. The palate is still quite tannic but there is great concentration of liquorice infused fruits. Good grip. Blackcurrant and burnt toast on the finish. Superb. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2000)

Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full red-ruby color. Redcurrant, raspberry, plum, tobacco, spice and mint on the nose. Sweet on entry, then firm and nicely delineated thanks to lively acids. Finishes with firm tannins and sneaky length. More Medoc in style than usual for this chateau; more marked by the Cabernet-but this is still about 75% Merlot. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/1999)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plenty of crushed berry and spice on the nose. Full-bodied, with full, slightly drying tannins, but good berry and chocolate flavors on the finish. Perhaps slightly overwooded. Inner quote mark (1/1999)
