Full-bodied and atypically rich and concentrated for a 2013, it boasts beautiful blueberry and creme de cassis fruit as well as underlying chalky minerality, and good richness and concentration. It is a noteworthy homage to Christine Vallete’s brilliant efforts at Troplong Mondot, which resulted in the elevation of this estate in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification. It can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. It has been less than six months since the irrepressible and brilliant Christine Vallette passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. I must confess that tasting at Troplong Mondot was a powerful emotional experience. However, the 2013 is clearly one of the stars of the vintage. (RP)
A dense and beautiful wine with blueberry, blackberry, mineral and spice aromas. Full to medium body, tight and powerful. Precise and exceptionally well made.
True to the estate's signature style, this is a powerful, luscious wine. It's ripe with plum and berry fruits,layered with dark, firm tannins. There is a juicy element as well as black-coffee flavors from the enthusiastic use of wood. Give it time to integrate properly and drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
The 2013 Troplong Mondot is gorgeous. Round, supple and resonant, the 2013 graces the palate with mocha, plums, spices and new leather. All the Troplong signatures are in place, but in miniature. The finish is long, supple and creamy. As always, Troplong Mondot is a wine of great personality and character, even in 2013. (AG)
This has lively fruit, with blueberry, raspberry and plum coulis flavors stretching out over fresh acidity that carries the anise-tinged finish. Shows more purity than density in the end. (JM)
Deliciously perfumed nose with violet, blackcurrant and plenty of luxurious oak giving clove and cedar. Structurally, this is one of the few St-Émilion 2013s with tannins to the fore, giving real punch and grip. There is ample fruit in support and this is a remarkably good result for the reputation of the vintage. 17.5/20 points. (RH)
Good full ruby. Rather full-blown aromas of raspberry, truffle and underbrush are accompanied by strong notes of menthol and charred oak. Sweet, broad and fresh, this Saint-Emilion boasts a fat middle and juicy dark berry flavors but the building tannins show a slightly dry edge. (ID)
