2017 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

SKU #1479116 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Troplong Mondot is stunning, just as it was en primeur. Rich and ample, yet endowed with striking energy as well, the 2017 is the first vintage made by new CEO Aymeric de Gironde and consulting winemaker Thomas Duclos. The 2017 takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. All of the power that is typical of this site is evident, it seems to come so naturally, and yet picking earlier and then using a lighter hand in the cellar yielded a Troplong of uncommon energy and vibrancy. The 2017 has been nothing short of thrilling on the four occasions I have tasted it from bottle so far. What a wine! (AG) 98+ Inner quote mark (2/2020)

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Fresh cassis bud, blueberry and liquorice root showing ripeness was full but not overdone. This is a definite break with the older Troplong style (also Aymeric de Gironde's first vintage as director, arriving just in time for harvest). Two years on, and it is really is rather lovely. Austerity is clear, as is true in so many of these wines, showcasing that 2017 is not a vintage for hedonists. But, this is bedding down for the long-term, and you can already feel the flesh laying down over the bones of the wine. Frost barely affected the vineyard at Troplong, giving a yield of 45hl/ha (in itself a bigger yield than was usual here in the old days), with 95% used for the grand vin.

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very perfumed and subtle with crushed currants, smoke and blackberries. Medium to full body. Compressed, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows focus and finesse with serious structure for the vintage. It grows slowly on the palate. Really beautiful. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is structured, with dense tannins as well as impressively ripe black fruit. Showing lifted acidity, succulent blackberry flavors and elegance, it has a good future... *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chateau Troplong Mondot continues in the new style of this estate and is based on 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc from healthy yields of 48 hectoliters per hectare. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by a stunning perfume of creme de cassis, black raspberries, white chocolate, crushed flowers, and a terrific sense of minerality. Flawlessly balanced, medium to full-bodied, and nicely concentrated, it shows the more elegant, classical style of the vintage beautifully. It has the texture and balance to drink brilliantly today yet will benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and keep for two decades or more. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Troplong Mondot is a little closed to begin, soon unfurling to reveal expanding notions of warm blackberries, wild blueberries and licorice plus hints of smoked meats, black olives, pencil shavings and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed mouth-coating black fruits, exploding into loads of earthy sparks with a soft, velvety texture from ripe, rounded tannins. It finishes with spectacular freshness and loads of layers. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very fresh in feel, with silky textured plum, cassis and cherry flavors infused with rooibos tea, mineral and floral notes. The long, refined finish lets the pure fruit sing, while the minerally edge adds detail. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc. Deep cherry red. Sweetly ripe but fresh dark-red fruit on the nose. Medium bodied, the tannins slightly chalky but giving just the right framework for the fruit: fresh, lightly chewy as they build in the mouth. Laudable restraint and yet impressive length. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
