CHÂTEAU TROPLONG MONDOT Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2012

2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #26

The 2012 Château Troplong Mondot is an absolutely spectacular showing. This mix of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon offers seductive aromas of ripe dark fruits, cassis and dark plums woven together with roasted coffee and graphite along with some smoke, spices and a chocolate character. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous, backed by round polished tannins and a wonderful layered texture which shows remarkable depth and concentration. Overall, this is a modern styled Saint-Émilion which is absolutely delicious today and should also continue to evolve gracefully over the course of the next 10-15 years, maybe even longer. (Best 2016-2030) - August, 2015 (JD)
