So as to understand Troplong Mondot one needs to leave behind categories and descriptions. Appreciating an atmosphere or a setting and nourishing oneself from it, both literally and metaphorically, means finding one's place in a world that one takes with oneself. A world like no other. The power of the 'terroir' tempered by the glistening fruit. The aromatic richness enhanced with elegant precision. The perfect balance of elements that respond to one another. The revelation of a unique universe that opens itself up over time. A feeling of fullness.

Wine SpectatorRipe and dense, but very vibrant and energetic, as a torrent of cassis, blackberry coulis and fig paste rushes through, framed by enticing black licorice and evenly roasted alder and juniper notes. The long finish has lots of grip and acidity, but they work together and are deeply embedded. Captures the fruit and structure of the vintage superbly. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Wine EnthusiastClocking in at 16%, this is a massive wine. Heady smoky wood aromas have given the wine a dry character. The immense palate has bitterness, extract and a solid core of tannins. It has considerable weight, just beginning to develop, although the alcohol does show through at the end.
