Region: Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux - France
Grapes: 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc
Color: Deep red colour, which is almost black.
Scents: The power and aromatic complexity are characterised by generous notes, evoking cherry liqueur, sumptuous chocolate and toasted notes of coffee.
Palate: The attack is frank and full-bodied, offering a great complexity of flavours, coupled with a creamy mouthfeel and grand scale. This wine offers a nice density, highly concentrated with tannins perfect for a long ageing in the bottle, firm but with a very fine grain. A superb Saint-Émilion - complex, rich and dense.
A Premier Grand Cru Classe B, Château Troplong Mondot is today considered one of the most prestigious properties of the Right Bank in the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation of Bordeaux.
