Description

“A wine that succeeds in combining great depth of flavor and structure with an impressive array of flavors. On top of the tannins is juicy black fruit, cocoa, a welter of spice and ripeness. The acidity and new wood put the wine into a more modern style. Wait for at least 5-7 years. *Cellar Selection*” 94 points, (RV) Wine Enthusiast

“Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2006 Troplong-Mondot is deep in color with minimal ageing on the rim. The bouquet is rich and generous with mulberry, Hoi Sin, orange blossom and melted tar aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, generous black pepper and graphite notes cutting through the dense black fruit, leading to an engaging, tensile, graphite and tobacco-driven finish that exerts both body and length. It still has that slight stockiness, but that is something I like. I have always found much to admire in this vintage of Troplong-Mondot and it continues to give so much pleasure.” 93 points, (NM) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

“90% Merlot. Very dark and thick. Quite intense nose with some liquorice. Quite tarry but definitely dramatic with some unusually marked sweetness! Definitely distinctive. Rich and seductive even if there is no shortage of dry tannins too.” 17/20 points, Jancis Robinson
