2005 Chateau Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1431611 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Troplong Mondot is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. It was emotional tasting this wine, thinking of the late Christine Valette, who made this compelling wine while battling with considerable courage against an insidious disease. It is a great effort and a superstar of the vintage. Dense purple, it offers notes of white chocolate, blackberry, cassis and licorice as well as a hint of truffle and some subtle background oak. Full-bodied, multi-layered, and spectacularly pure and rich, it is a tour de force, and a great tribute to an incredible woman. Remarkably youthful, this wine probably needs another 4-8 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20 or more years. Kudos to the late Christine Valette! (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2005 Troplong Mondot is simply magnificent. Rich, opulent and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2005 is another wine that takes hold of all the senses with its engaging personality and sheer sensory overload. Black fruit, mocha, bittersweet chocolate, new leather and spices flesh out in a captivating, riveting wine that shows the modern style of Bordeaux at its very best. This is a pure pleasure bomb. (AG) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark A blockbuster of a wine with a three-dimensional texture and outstanding weight but with almost magically ripe acidity giving great precision to the flavors and drawing out the finish. Incredible melting tannins saturate the palate and front teeth. Wonderfully suave wine, the best I've ever tasted from this chateau. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Exhibits aromas of coffee, ripe fruit, wild mushroom and blackberry. Dark and very complex. Full-bodied and chewy, yet velvety and beautiful, with intense flavors of blackberry, chocolate and tobacco. Very, very long This is layered and gorgeous. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 90% Merlot. Dark, intense and savoury. Very dry finish. Exaggerated but offers some pleasure rather than pain. Extreme in every sense! Bit of heat. Great for cocoa lovers. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
