BRANDChâteau Troplong Mondot
The 2020 Château Troplong Mondot ffers a dense purple hue as well as powerful, unevolved aromas and flavors of pure crème de cassis, black cherries, graphite, gravelly earth, and tobacco. Coming from the highest elevation vineyard in the appellation and deeper, clay soils, it’s medium to full-bodied and has a dense, thick mid-palate, building tannins, and a great finish.
It’s not for the instant gratification crowd out there, but it’s going to be incredibly long-lived. Hats off to the team at Troplong Mondot as well as oenologist Thomas Duclos.
