Inky black. Round and quite thick. Very pure black cherry and ripe plum, very silky tannins give volume. Perfumed and opulent silk velvet texture, rich full and pure. The blackest of fruits and minerals. One of the top Saint Emilions without a doubt. Lovely richly purple pure length. Rating: 93 L&S (Apr 2009)

Massively deep purple. Complex nose draws you in. Very rich and sweet and seductive with excellent oak management. This is pure right-bank seduction with some hint of cordite on the finish. Finishes dry. Good stuff. Drinking range: 2016 - 2032 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Jan 2012)

Bright ruby-red. Superripe, musky aromas of black cherry, minerals and flowers. Lush and silky but quite backward, with excellent energy to the primary dark fruit and mineral flavors. Chewy, powerfully structured wine. The superb building finish features substantial granular tannins and lovely definition. Rating: 93+ Stephen Tanzer, (Jul 2011)

A wine of the vintage candidate in 2008, Troplong Mondot’s offering was produced from yields of 41 hectoliters per hectare and achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A classic blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it offers copious quantities of blue and black fruits, a full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and a fabulous texture as well as finish. Already drinking beautifully, it will be even better in 2-5 years and should last for 20 years. A great effort for the vintage, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving proprietor, Christine Valette. Bravo! Drinking range: 2013 - 2033 Rating: 96 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Apr 2009)
