Château Troplong Mondot St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

$115

A wine of the vintage candidate in 2008... 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...should last for 20 years. A great effort for the vintage, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving proprietor, Christine Valette. Bravo! Robert Parker

Titties and beer! This is super young but what a wine. Opulent and fleshy yet has the limestone backbone which keeps it lively. Needs time but a great reference point for what I think was the best st emilion in 2008

I detected something here I have been looking for in the more recent vintages of this amazing property: balance and acidity! Classic, but still a baby so while it is very good, it should be excellent in another 5-7 years and go another 15-20. #troplongmondot #merlot #bordeaux

Still very young, but in the adolescent stage and just starting to show some bottle bouquet. Always love Troplong.

Great balanced wine. You can feel the merlot, fruits everywhere. There is no oak, meats or anything strong.

All day long! A punch in the face of dark fruits, leather and mild terroir flavors. If I wanted to introduce someone to what French wines can be this would be near the top of the list.

Smells like classic Bordeaux. Silky mouthfeel with dark fruit flavours. Tart finish, slight bitter aftertaste.
