Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Troplong-Mondot has long been a Saint Emilion that has surpassed the vintage. It has a sophisticated bouquet with crushed strawberry, fresh mint and subtle gamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin on the entry, the fruit a little darker and the personality a little broodier than the Canon-la-Gaffelière, gently fanning out on the almost Pomerol-like finish. Probably à point, but it will give another decade's worth of pleasure. (NM)
Deep red-ruby. Expressive aromas of musky black cherry, cassis and bitter chocolate. Plush, pliant, round and sweet, with smoky blueberry, mineral and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by tar and licorice. Finishes long, with very suave tannins. This seems almost drinkable now but has the concentration and structure to reward aging. (ST)
Shows blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with hints of wet earth. Medium- to full-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and lots of new wood. Really polished. (JS)
